Starlight Bre- Wait, something's not right. Do I need to cool my head a bit? -- Takamachi Nanoha
Council Directive 1514
Proposal: A poll shall be held with selected Senior Members. The winner of the poll will become a Leader of the Senior Member group, and be awarded the Zanber Badge.
Proposed by: Hikigaya Hachiman
Consent: Nakamura Yuri, Oreki Hōtarō, Lelouch Lamperouge, Hikigaya Hachiman
Abstain: Sanzen'in Nagi, Tokisaki Kurumi
Yuri: What are you writing, Lelouch?
Lelouch: Ah Miss Nakamura. I am writing a reply letter to Miss Fate Testarossa.
Yuri: You two actually write to each other? Wow I never had the impression that you two were close, this is a bit of a surprise to me.
Lelouch: Yes. She is the first Tiara winner of the ISML, while I am the first Champion of the Male Division. We have met several times during Past Champion activities, and we share some bonding. Although she is no longer an active competitor, she still cares very much about the Community. She caught news that I had recently been elected as a Seitokai member, and she wrote a letter congratulating me.
Yuri: Wow that's quite amazing. When I arrived in ISML she has already retired, and I never had the pleasure of meeting her. I guess the only other person here who has had the chance of knowing her would be Nagi? Did she write a letter to congratulate you as well?
Nagi: What? I'm busy with my manga. Hayate handles all my letters for me, anyway. Speaking of such, where is Hayate?
Lelouch: I believe he is outside with Miss Tokisaki. Miss Tokisaki said she wanted to 'play games' with 'her cute little boy'.
Nagi: W- What is that pervert trying to do to Hayate!?
Yuri: Wait Nagi! Where are you going?
Nagi: To look for Hayate of course! He is MY butler! *rushes out of the room*
Yuri: *facepalms* Those two... Or rather, three...
Lelouch: Don't be too concerned, Miss Nakamuri. We don't have any active tasks at hand, so maybe it's alright for them to have some relaxing time.
Yuri: I guess you are right... So anything else Fate said in her letter?
Lelouch: She was wondering whether people in the Community still remember her. Of course they do, you know about the Forum Cards? Miss Testarossa, as one of the past Champions, has a Mega card herself, and I heard there are fans actively seeking for her.
Yuri: There is a badge named after Fate too. Is it called the Zanber Badge?
Lelouch: Yes, Miss Nakamuri. It is reserved for members who have contributed significantly to the ISML over the past years. Currently there are five people who own the Badge.
Yuri: Speaking of such badge... I remember there was a request from the Staff about it... Oreki, you are the Secretary, do you know what it is?
Hōtarō: ... Yeah. *lifts a sheet of paper from among the messy pile of files*
Yuri: *reads* Good grief, they want to hold a poll to decide the awardee of the Zanber Badge this year. This is something important, Oreki, why didn't you raise this earlier?
Hōtarō: Low energy...
Lelouch: It is alright, Miss Nakamuri. It seems it is still not too late for this.
Yuri: You're right. We just need to prepare the necessary documents as soon as possible. Oreki?
Hōtarō: Whatever you say as long as I don't have to move.
Yuri: ... Alright that's good enough. Hikigaya?
Hachiman: I don't understand the point of this poll. Is it really necessary? Does the Community have the wisdom and ability to decide who is worthy of getting the badge? I doubt that. Poll is nothing but a lie by the people in power to act as if they are practicing democracy, which is alright when the results turn out to be in line with what the rulers have in mind, but they can easily overturn it with alternative measures if the results are not as they desire, while they can say they have allowed democracy. Is democracy a good thing in itself though, I doubt...
Yuri: This is a request from the Staff, and I don't see any reason to turn it down. Nagi and Kurumi are absent for the vote, and we need one more vote to pass this!
Hachiman: Tch... Not voting yes won't change the outcome anyway, will it? If I don't agree, you will wait for the President to come back and then sweet talk her into giving that extra vote you need for passing this bill, so you ultimately get what you want. Any other option does no good other than delaying things, I guess I might as well compromise here.
Yuri: Great! Now please prepare the documents, thanks!
Hachiman: ... Why am I the one doing this when I didn't even agree in the first place?
