The Empire Fights Back (Topaz 1)image by melange
Despite the God Empress' order, the JCS seemed the more dire threat to the Empire than the DEEN. Only Nagisa the Bold engaged the DEEN's President Kurimu, managing a concincing defeat of the Directorate's President.
The JCS would prove more difficult, even for the God Empress. Haruhi would engage her longtime rival, Kugimiya Grand Master Shana. Shana had been on a rampage, defeated all opponents by a large margin. Haruhi would be defeated by the Grand Kugimiya Master, but the God Empress would give Shana to most fight she'd seem since the end of the last war.
Shana's push lead to a massive offensive against the KyoAni Empire. Spiritualist Isumi would defeat the Loli Warriors of Mei. Kugimiya Knight Louise of the Void would engage and destroy a Starfish Warrior's Platform defending the Clannad Republic.
The Shining Blue Dragons of Ali would take the opportunity to strike at the Sacred Ushio and damage the shrine. Only the efforts of "The Castinet Hero" stopped the Legendary Maria from capitalizing on the openning.
Flight Lt. Asuza would pull patrol duty near the Geass Regency and engage Regency forces in combat and come out victorious.
Key Advisor Kyou would deflect an attack from the Angel Nymph. What do the Angel's want?
Wing Commander Mio would train with the Legendary Kagamin and prove her fighters better in combat against the slower ships of Kagami's fleet.
The Balsamic Fleet would provide escort to the Moe Marines of Mikuru to the front line.
St. Nagato-chi would test President Tomoyo's loyalty to the God Empress. Also to test the speed of Tomoyo's attacks verse Yuki's defenses. Yuki was satisfied on both counts.
The Trade World of Izumi was investigated by Key Intelligence Office Ichinose, who left will less money.....
Representative Ryou's ship wass forced to stop at the Planet UI for repairs and supplies.
The DEEN would be forced to contend with the JCS on their second front. Lt Saten was defeated by the Loli-clones of Illya in the border regions. Also released was the JCS's secret weapon...the "A-tan". It defeated the DEEN vessel Lilicia
without little resistance.
The Diet Warriors raided the cream puff stocks of Hanyuu.
Other DEEN forces had problems.
Director Minatsu was defeated by the Snake Nadeko.
Horo Enterprises denied shipments to the Council due to tarriffs set by Magistrate Chizuru.
The Nebula of the Golden Darkness swallowed a vessel carrying wine from Rika-chama.
The Red Mage Rin managed to gain a victory over the White Devil. No befriending this time.
Saber would reprimand Director Mafuyu after the costly failure against the KyoAni Empire.
Fate would be given a hard leason about Lightning by Techno-Commander Misaka.
Kugimiya Knight Taiga would engage and defeat the Hitagi in JCS space.
The Angel Ikaros would take the Twin Worlds of Nokoka and the Minami Mafia would take the Mihoko Pulsar....no reasons are known for these actions.
President Hinagiku would make sure the Kugimiya Master Nagi realized that the HnG Combine was in the JCS on her say-so, not on the whims of the Kugimiya Knights.
