Part 95: Mission 41 - The Light of Hope - Part 2: Ive quite the hefty reward waiting join me and it is yours ! Ill give you five times what you make in a year!
: Your intels very outdated, guy. We havent been fighting for a paycheck for a long while now.
: You wont make mine and Team Ds hearts waver by tempting us with that!
: Why ? You were all a bunch of unassuming civilians, so why are you so scrupulous now?!
: I might not look like it, but Im a one-man kind of woman. Now, as for contracts, maybe you can convince me?
: Do you want me to cry? Because youre making me cry right now...
: Dude, shes just giving him the run-around.
: You really are a bunch of idiots. But in a very good way, thankfully.
: And we kind of came too far to turn back on it, right? Besides, this is really, really exciting.
: Time to bring him into the supernova that is the Dancouga that which has transcended the beasts and the gods themselves!
: Lets go wild!
Gloria vs Aoi: Youve transcended the beasts, men and the gods themselves... but youll find it impossible to transcend me!
: Why are you set on doing this?! Im sure there were other ways you couldve brought happiness to you world!
: We tried, all the way until our resources ran dry. That was when I learned of the existence of this world.
: And ruling two worlds Now that was an accomplishment that would measure up to my talents and dedication!
: This man is ! Kira, we dont have a choice here!
: I know, Athrun! He has to be stopped ! We cant let our world head down the wrong direction again!
Gloria vs. Kira: A world ruled by me that is the world I hope for!
: Hes emanating an enormous amount of energy. That said !
: Right. A man without the strength that comes from the heart will not bring us down!
: The strength of the heart, hm ? Ill concede that it has proven its usefulness. But can something as fickle as that help you overcome the titanic gulf between our units?!
: Those who say that will always wind up regretting how ignorant they were!
: Kenji, Hiroshi! Now is the time to bring out the full power of your Bronze Bells!
: Aye, aye, grams!
: Get over here, ya crummy President! The Steel Gods packing all our hearts and youre gonna get a mouthful of what they give us!
Gloria vs. Kenji: I doubt a dimwit like you could understand anything, even if I tried to explain it.
: Why are you starting a war with other humans?! We even managed to understand each other with the Vajra!
: The worthless masses are worse than even a swarm of bugs. That is why they must be lead !
: No one here ever asked to be lead by you! You should just be happy being President of your own world!
: Oh, but I cannot simply give up on my dream! Only those who believe they can go the distance can overcome their limits and reach beyond!
: Bite me! Do you seriously think its alright to prey on others just to fulfill your dream?!
: Those who lack the capacity to grasp my noble designs ought to simply step back and contend themselves observing my rise to supremacy!
: Just give me a while and Ill bring that planet you found into my fold as well!
: You hear that, princess? We better stop him or hes going to annex our Frontier too.
: Alright, that does it I cant let him get out of here in one piece!
: Ranka, Sheryl ! This guy would close off the sky itself, and I swear it on the wings you gave me that Ill run him into the ground!
Gloria vs. Alto: Youve my thanks for settling things with the Vajra. Now I only need to worry about stamping out the worthless masses!
: Target in sight We wont let you bring sorrow to anyone else !
: The God created by Man Still, if it cannot unleash its true power, then its no cause for concern!
: Whatever they had in mind when they were making the EVA, Ill be using its power to protect everyone else!
: Well, look at him, all manly and grown up. I cant well get left in the dust, though ! Here we go, #02!
Gloria vs. Shinji: The EVA and its A.T. Field How effective will that be against the Galtdeus, I wonder?
: I wont let you go on using my grandfathers creations for evil.
: I hoped you had learned where you stand in all this. Will you fly off in a panic once I defeat you again?
: Yuus far stronger than he was before, Gloria. Your data is in dire need of a revision.
: I got a lesson in humility from someone. You wont be besting me anymore!
: Lets go, Haruno. You, me, the Straybird and LOTUS!
: Ready as always !
: Not even in my wildest dreams did I think the unit we found with Prof. Grife would become such a nuisance !
: To think I, of all people, would gloss over the huge potential it had.
: Maybe you kidnapped the professor and did the stuff you did because it was the only way to keep your people safe from Central But!
: What youre doing today is 100% inexcusable!
: Yeah, and Im not gonna ! Not as part of LOTUS, and not an individual!
: Then come and try your hand! I, Ludo Gloria, will not be bested by a mere brat!
: I dont need your permission, prez! Here we go, Alice! Well bring out everything we learned til now and blast him straight off our Earth!
: Ready when you are, Ichitaka! No problems at all!
Yuu vs Gloria:
- I wont forgive you for using my grandfathers intellect for evil!
- Yuu: Heres your due for toying with us! > Haruno: This is your end, Ludo Gloria!
- Gloria vs. Yuu: Are you watching, Prof. Grife? Im about to send your dear family spiraling into the afterlife!/ Perhaps you and the power that bested the Imperial Valley can actually amount to potential but prevailing against me is well beyond you!
- Alice: How dare you use the professors mind for evil! > Ichitaka: Ill never forgive you
not as a member of LOTUS or as another human!
- Ichitaka: President or not, Ive had it up to here with you looking down on everyone else! > Alice: But we will put a stop to that today!
- When counterattacking Ichitaka: President, schmesident! Youre just a big time crook, pure and simple! > Alice: Hit him back, Ichitaka! I wont show him any mercy either!
- Gloria vs. Ichitaka: Watching you grow was especially delightful, Ichitaka. But Im afraid you surpassed by expectations far too much. / Are you watching, Prof. Grife? What we have here is a showdown between your two masterpieces!
: Did we get him ?!
: Severe damage confirmed to his engine That mobile fortress is finished.
: Hrgh Why ? While youve been fighting for what you think is right, the people have been doing nothing but daydream about peace
: How can you justify risking your lives for a bunch like that ?!
: Because thats our duty as pilots and there isnt anyone here whod turn his or her back on it !
: You do understand that while the masses may be grateful today, theyll soon forget all youve done, right?
: This was never about getting props from others. Everything I did was because I wanted to keep everyones smiles safe !
: How long will that philosophy last, I wonder? I tried serving the people once I believed that was the duty of those blessed with talent
: I willingly offered myself as a subject in nanomachine research. I ignored all the risks that came from parleying with Central and personally saw it done.
: But the people are an insatiable lot. They want peace, they want wealth, they want more equality, they want more liberties They want more and more and more
: But you still cant let yourself be broken by that! You gotta stay your path and carry on, no matter how tough it is! That Thats what justice is about!
: Justice what a bunch of hot air. How did you ever defeat me ?
: Because weve got all our friends here with us. And we can help each other, and turn that hot air into something real.
: But not you, President Gloria And thats how you shot yourself in the foot. As determined as you mightve been, you wound up sabotaging your own work.
: Is that so ? I used to have friends comrades but I killed the man I used to be Id turned my back on everything
: Would things have been different ? Could I have held onto my old ideals if I hadnt forsaken the bonds I had ?
: I hope you wont end up like me
: Its over its really over.
: Yes, it is. But we still have things to do.
: Much of the world is in tatters Well need to bring some courage and hope to all those weary people
: We must also reach out to the PLANTs and the dwellers of the parallel universe, and work to establish peace between us.
: A Champion of Justices work is never done, eh?
: Hmhmm. But this battle isnt just ours its one that involves all those who call the Earth Sphere their home
: In that case, weve plenty of groundwork to put into place! Chop-chop, everyone! Lets head home!
: Yeah, lets head home the Earth is waiting for us!
: It is a difficult moment we find ourselves in. But it is also a major opportunity for every person to extend a friendly hand to another.
: We and the PLANTs swear that we will spare no efforts in helping restore the scars left on Earth from the parallel universes offensive
: And while it will be a gradual process, we will very soon be initiating diplomatic talks with the other Earth. But there is no need to view them with suspicion may I remind you of our alliance with the Frontier Fleet, and their help in defending our world.
: Naturals, Coordinators, Implanted humans, Zentradi society has so many different facets. But now is the moment where we must work together and rise above the walls between us.
: It will be a long and difficult road until peace is truly upon us, but that is a voyage we must all strive to see fulfilled. And that is why
: Lacus and Relenas declaration is being received quite favorably across the world, it seems.
: I want to believe that a wish for peace has found its way into the hearts of every person Its that light that gives us hope
: It might be a small flicker right now, that light is one we must always keep safe And Ill keep on doing so by Lacus side.
: What about you, Athrun? Are you staying in Orb?
: I am and, this time, Ill do everything I can to help Cagalli restore it. Guess we wont be seeing each other for a while again
: Ill be keeping your FAITH badge, though. Cant let you walking around with a free pass to do whatever!
: Psh, you gotta learn how to open up, man. You know you dont need to do that to get him to visit the PLANTs.
: So youre really staying in Orb, Shinn?
: Yeah. I want Stella to take some time to rest now that shes finally free from the battlefield.
: Yay! I can stay with you!
: But you need some time off too, you know. Youve got plenty of you want to do, like visiting your familys grave, right?
: Hm, youre right
: Then how about I come with? Ive got just enough vacation hours piled up, and itd do me good to put my feet up now that things are calm again.
: Heey, Luna! Im not staying here to play around, you know!
: Im kidding, Im kidding Still, do you think I can join you when youre bringing flowers to the memorial?
: But when youve wrapped everything up here, you better come back to the PLANTs pronto, alright? And make sure you bring Stella along, too.
: Well all be waiting so dont forget where your home is.
: Of course not ! After all, thats the home the Chairman left in our care
: The terrorists planning to attack the ceremony have mostly been captured.
: Ive taken the rest of them. Everythings secured in a 3km radius.
: Whew Im glad the worlds at peace, but it looks like Relenas no less of a target than she was before.
: It doesnt matter. Ill eliminate any obstacles that get in her way
: Oh, what an intense prince we have here. But maybe thats just the ticket when youre tagging along with that girl.
: Still, wouldnt it be nice to see some payoff from all the fighting you did?
: No, were content in just snuffing out any sparks of war, like weve always done. Hope has already found its way on the peoples hearts theres no need us to fly our Gundams anymore.
: The worlds taken its first step towards peace, but things are hardly calm just yet. Would you be willing to carry on fighting at our side?
: Im super okay with that! I can handle anything if Shizuru with me!
: Easy there, cowboy.
: You can count on us, Lady! Weve been watching over Earth all this time, so why not stick with it, right?
: Well have other bad eggs turn up eventually, and Ill be ready to shut them down for as long Im alive !
: But Id like to ask: wherere Goh and the others? I didnt see them outside
: Ah, dont worry. Theyre back at the Dannar Base, helping with the reconstruction.
: Haah carrying all this stuff is pretty tiring business even with the Dannar
: Goh, watch how youre setting those down! Theres no room for the other container! Move them about 10cm to the side!
: And just how do you expect the Godannar to handle something as precise as that?!
: Nows not the time to start grumbling! Were short on both workers and equipment, you know! Come on, just a bit to the right!
: Ah! Heres the container I was looking for!
: Brother! We need your help over here!
: Gaaah, shut up! Shut up! Shut up!
: Goh Saruwatari so he also gets like that when theres no enemy to fight
: Hard to believe that thats the hero from the War of Giants and one of LOTUS members, huh?
: Hmhmhm, Ill say. Still, a world that has no need for heroes is always preferable to the alternative. So I hope well be seeing Goh as antsy as that for a long time.
: Treason, terrorism the list goes on. By rights, you would likely all be sentenced to life in prison or worse.
: And Im sure you understood that youd eventually have to pay for the crimes you committed.
: But its also true that you and your comrades helped save this world So, taking your contributions into account, the powers that be are extending you an extra-legal pardon.
: We really appreciate that.
: But, theres a string attached: youll be joining an intelligence agency suitable for people in your situation.
: An intelligence agency ?
: Do you mean
: While LOTUS has been dismissed, the Preventers are still an arm of the UN and were always understaffed.
: That kind of work suits me just fine, but is that really alright?
: If you were willing to die for your cause, why not try a new life for yourselves?
: ... And we wont even ask you to wear a mask.
: Hah, so even Preventer Wind has a sense of humor Id wager not even Hisataka Katou could have imagined this.
: Good day, Ikari.
: Good day Hm? Why is your hand covered in band-aids?
: Prof. Akagi put them there.
: Thats not what I How did you get hurt? Are you okay?
: Its a secret Ill tell you later.
: (I feel this warmth inside whenever Im with Ikari I want him to feel the same way with me )
: (I want him to feel that way with the Cmdr., too, and to get along with him, so )
: Ikari, Im thinking of putting together a small dinner party later. If you want, you can
: Ah, here you are, Shinji!
: Kouichi?! And the JUDA team too Why are you all here ?
: Work, as luck would have it. JUDAs opened this new resort to help people in trouble relax, so were telling folks about the place.
: Feel free to stop by whenever, Shinji and bring Asuka and Rei along when you do. Kouichi and Yajima got their own little shop there.
: Not to blow my own horn, but I make a pretty mean yakisoba. I bet itll totally one-up your usual lunchbox, Shinji!
: This isnt a competition, ya dumdum!
: Ooow, cut it out!
: Hes right, sis. Our Factor powers are gone, so
: If you go at him like you did before, hell actually die this time.
: You really lost your powers ?
: But for a bunch of regular kids, you still look like youve got some fighting spirit in you.
: Hell, yeah! I might not be able to fly the Linebarrel anymore, but Im still a CHAMPION OF JUSTICE!
: Yeah, were still signed up as JUDAs Special Forces.
: Our battles now are just making sure everyone has a smile on their faces.
: Hahah, thats actually well said. But, if youll excuse me, Im late for practice, so
*Off she goes.*
: Ah, found him! You there, Shinjis friend! Theres someone looking for you.
: Yeah, it was um a girl with long, black hair I think?
: Oh, crap! I forgot Id promised to meet up with Emi...!
*And he runs.*
: He just cant sit still
: (Was I actually laughing back there ?)
: (Huh I guess I can laugh now )
: Im so, so sorry, Emi! I ran into Shinji and we just started talking !
: Its fine, Im not angry Honestly, I knew this was going to happen.
: After all, you wouldnt be my dear Kouichi if you didn't forget what you were doing the second anything piqued your interest.
: My dear Kouichi ? Isnt that what you called me back during the fight with Central?
: Heh Im kinda embarrassed to hear that again.
: Are you? Then, how about My Kouichi?
: Whuh ?! But, um, thats Emi, I !
: Come now, if Im calling you like that, the best you could do is answer in kind!
: M-M-My d-d-d
: My dear Emi.
: I know, I know! B-But, I !
: Hahahah Youre despicable!
Full disclaimer: this was originally one of THOSE scenes, where the characters go Oh, stop calling me by my surname and use my first name obviously not gonna fly with me using everyones first names throughout all this. Worse, they even paired it with Emi dropping the honorific, which wouldve forced me to change things regardless.
Combing the entire LP to rewrite all names as surnames is not happening, so I had to switch a few things to make it work and still keep most of the scene intact and true to the original. Nice of them to drop this on me during the epilogue!
: This was quite the busy day, all things considered
: JUDAs resort, huh ? Maybe I should call Misato and see if she wants to come with us?
: If they can get a day off, we could also ask Kaji and Ritsuko too
: Well, darn. I finally get to Japan and I dont even get a chance to shine Sucks for you, too, dont it?
: Wah?! W-Who are?!
: Just a very special girl passing by. Ill be seeing you later, little puppy!
: H-Huuh ?
: Good luck, Kenjiii!
: Youve got us working as your pit babes, so you better win this or therell be Hell to pay!
: Kenji vs. Kyo Who do you thinkll come out on top, captain?
: I wonder There might be a bit of a dark horse running this one.
: Im gonna put you in your place today, Kyo!
: Try, but dont expect me to make it easy!
: Much as I hate raining on you boys parade, Im afraid this cup belongs to me!
: Open up those peepers and take a look at how I work with my Magnum! (This is a reference to Bakusō Kyōdai Let's & Go!, where Aois VA voiced Go Seiba.)
: Thats quite the close race Did you know Aois an F-1 racer and a three-time champion, Sakuya?
: Yeah, I looked her up after I heard she was also a top model.
: Guess you and her both have your share of secrets.
: Not like I ever went out of my way to hide anything, though Oh, Johnny! Isnt it time for Eidas show?
: Relax, I didnt forget. Here, I brought my notebook
: Were coming live from the Reconstruction Charity Concert! Todays attractions are Eida Rossa, every teenagers favorite singer, and
: Lacus Clynes old body double, now a rising star after her shocking reveal: Meer Campbell!
: Isabelles been getting a ton of work lately. And Eidas even more popular than she was before, huh?
: Ill say Just the other day, I had to put together a scrapbook from a Mens Popstars Monthly she starred in and it was a pain.
: Johnny shes your girlfriend. You better learn how to make do with little stuff like that.
: Im so happy that we can sing together again, Meer!
: Oh, no, no! Im still just an amateur! I dont deserve
: Please, thats doesnt matter at all! I know you took a lot of flak after publically announcing that you were Lacus double
: But here you are, singing your own songs with your head held high. Youre a wonderful artist, Meer, and I mean it!
: Thank you, Eida ! And if I can bring just a bit of joy to those that are suffering, then Im ready to sing my heart out on stage!
: Ditto Though I wish we could also have Sheryl and Ranka here with us.
: Hm, I know The Macross Quarter should be just about ready to leave, right?
: We can use the Vajras ability to head back to our original universe?
: Yup. From what Ranka said, they apparently can even warp their own planet over there.
: Its not easy leaving this world behind, but the UN and the new president of our New United Nations Government will start diplomatic talks in due time
: So we might just be able to see them again. Still, as the SMS, we must now return to our original mission.
: Youre really going, huh Tsk, its gonna get real lonely around here.
: Decades have passed since we left, but home is still home we all want to find the way back to our Earth.
: Speaking of, howre things with that New United Nations Government?
: The moderate faction's regained their power and have appointed a new president. From what weve heard, theyre officially working on sending peace ambassadors to this side.
: Thats good to hear!
: On the flip side, I heard the other world has this Anti-Unification League bunch?
ji: And itll also fall on us to help find a solution to that.
: Moreover, it seems the Warp Route between Earth and Planet Boazan had stabilized and both planets are already interacting with one another. Things will be quite busy in the near future.
: Its all good, dad! Im ready to do whatever to keep peace going!
: And, Alto, I know this aint none of my business, but dont you think you gotta hurry up and make up your mind already?
: Hes right. A man cant be all willy-nilly like that.
: This might not be a serious matter for you, but it sure is for the girls.
: Hrm, its not easy hearing that from you Now youre making me feel like scum.
: But theyre absolutely right. Dont go at this the way someone did.
: Yeesh, Klan I came through and said the words, didnt I?
: Yeah once! I wanna hear you say it for the rest of your life! Consider it payback for your past behavior!
: We might be at this for a while, then, because Ive absolutely no intention of dying anytime soon.
: I know, which is precisely the point!
: Were receiving a call from Nanase at Island 1. Patching it through.
: Is everyone alright?! Youve no idea how shocked I was when I heard that you all were all fighting to protect us. I thought it was just the ZAFT and Voltes teams
: What about your injuries, Nanase? Are you feeling better already?
: Luca thank you. Yes, Im all better. The hospital finally discharged me today, even.
: Oh, thats great news! We can all go to school together again, then!
: We should totally get together and just kick back, Nanase!
: Of course. Im already counting the minutes for you guys to come over to this planet!
: And the Iczers will be coming with us to the Frontier Fleet, too, right?
: Yes. Talks were had and the Cthulhu people will also be making the Vajra planet their home.
: Iczer-3 was always so friendly with the Vajra, huh? Now that I think about it, could you understand what they were feeling?
: Hmm I cant understand them like you can, more like I can kinda tell when they were mad, happy and stuff.
: Ah? What I said annoyed you, Mr. Bug? Sorry! You know I love you, little cutie!
: Hes not Mr. Bug! Hes Ai-kun and hes our friend!
: Strange how come Iczer-3s the only one who can tell what the Vajra and animals are feeling?
: I suppose its because empathy like hers will be essential to the Cthulhu from this moment onwards.
: Perhaps Iczer-3s actual struggle will be to bring kindness to all corners of the universe and thats a struggle without end.
: Indeed, shes a failure as a warrior But without people like those, the universe could never be free from war.
: We all have a long road ahead of us but we must carry onwards if were to atone for our peoples sins.
: Iczer-1 as I mentioned before, the Cthulhu now need you to succeed Sir Violet as our leader.
: Are you certain about this, Gray? I am an android, not a purebred Cthulhu.
: But your heart is no different from ours, no? That makes you a person, Iczer-1.
: I would also be willing to follow you, my sister.
: Thank you, Nagisa, Iczer-2
: Youll be a very busy woman now, huh, Iczer-1? Promise me you wont push yourself too hard huh?
: Ahahah I told myself I wouldnt cry, but I guess thats not happening
: Nagisa though our paths might diverge, the bond between us is eternal. We will always be partners
: I know Thank you for everything, Iczer-1 but this wont be goodbye !
: Indeed !
: So the arks with the Darian people will be leaving with the Quarter?
: Though our destinations will be different, we figured itd be simpler logistics to load both our cargoes at the same time.
: Naoto, damn good work while I was down for the count.
: And now you and Daiya can slow down and rest for a bit, yes? (Shes just called Daiyas Mom)
: I dunno Mom, Dad theres something I learned from all this.
: What is it, Daiya?
: Its really difficult to put together a peaceful world And that peace only exists because weve got folks trying their hardest to life good, and no one even knows theyre there.
: Those people are still going at it, so I dont think I can just stand around doing nothing.
: You really are an eager beaver, huh?
: I took it from dad, I think. Hahahah!
: Well take care of the surface, so you and the Daiku Maryu make sure you keep the Darius arks nice and safe!
: You neednt even ask us that!
: The Daichi and Tenku Maryusll also be accompanying us. I doubt any creature could give us pause.
: Puria, I think if youve time to fuss over others, then you could spend it becoming a bit more feminine. (Daimon)
: Get off my back, old man!
: Daiya, whatever happens, know that youll always be the 47th crewmember of the Daiku Maryu.
: Lulu If you ever run into any trouble, you can hit me up whenever, alright? Even if youre halfway across the universe, Ill come running. And thats a promise!
: Daiya !
: Its almost time to say goodbye to our friends of Earth, Ranka. Lets go and give them something to remember us by!
: Okay! Thank you so much for all youve done for us, everyone! Well never forget you!
: Now, for one last time, listen to our song!
And following the credit sequence
: Im here, professor! You said you had something you wanted to show me?
: Hmhmm. With my underground lab fully restored and the insurance money coming in, Ive started working on something huge.
: So I figured Id let you have a look-see at the blueprints before its put together.
: Ooh, nice. Give me something to wet my appetite, huh? Though I cant really make a lot of sense from any of this.
: But you got me curious now. Can you tell me what youre putting together?
: Heheheh Open up your ears and prepare to be blown away! Im building a carrier for the Rushbird and Straybird!
: You serious, professor?!
: JUDA HQ had that Flag holed up inside it, right? I cant let them one-up me like that!
: Oh, boy looks like things will be getting busy in the underground again.
: But its been ages since you worked there, so I see no problems at all with that!
: I suppose I do appreciate the challenge of helping him. Haruno, well need you and Alice to welcome eventual visitors, alright?
: But I thought my AI wasnt suited for household tasks.
: Maybe not, but I want you to try regardless. Im sure anything Alice can do, you can as well, and vice-versa.
: Haruno, what do you say when a visitor arrives?
: Target sighted. Engaging.
: What?! No! No engaging!
: But, professor, whatre you making this carrier for? The worlds already at peace.
: I figured even if therere no enemies around, itd work as a symbol of hope for the people. But mostly Im making it because I felt like it!
: Still, this baby will be quite something. I just have to get the energy flow running proper, and itll even be able to head on over to the Highly Probable World.
: Then we could see our friends again?!
: Sure, sure. I want everyone to get a good nights sleep today work begins tomorrow!
: (And, so, life went back to normal. Things arent the same as they were before, but weve the whole future to look forward to.)
: (And if you ask me, I hope these peaceful days will go on forever !)
And, boom, another SRW down.
All in all, I had fun doing L, even if its nowhere close to being my favorite. The series list was nice (bring the Iczers back, Banpresto!), the BGMs and graphics were great and I enjoyed plenty of moments throughout yes, even Frontier (the finales good). Only major gripes I have are the Iczer-3 bosses getting bushwhacked by the plot and, like in MX, the originals lack of relevance for pretty much the whole thing. I giggled too hard at SEELE being no-sold to chalk that up as a demerit.
As always, I have to extend my gratitude to Hokuto, TheMajinZenki and Caphi for their ever-present support, insight and willingness to hear me rant about the game deciding be cute and blindside me (whatthefucklinebarrelsthisisbull!).
Ill be taking a quick gander over this to scan for any typos that went under the radar, but if anyone finds any, do post about it or send me a message. When thats done, its straight to the archives.
And as Ive made note during the course of this, UX is slated as the next one. When will it be? Depends on how quickly I can get everything set up and running smoothly, but Ill try to play Santa and start it soon. In the meantime, you folks go practicing your TAMASHIIII voice.
Thanks for reading!
