Part 218: Mission 56 - Your Self, My Self - Part 4
Thats one problem down, now for the next one. Well run Kira right into Reys face so he cant use his DRAGOON and start fulfilling the secret.
: Kira Yamato! You're mine!
: Who are you? Who is that in there?
: You, of all people, should know...
: I'm... Rau le Creuset...
: You're the product of all of mans hopes and dreams, Kira Yamato...
: And that's why you must now die!
: Rau le Creuset...!
: Youll disappear, together with us!
: What... how?! How are you still--?!
: We can't run from ourselves... and we can never take back our pasts!
: So Ill bring an end to it all! The world and its people will return to what they should be!
: You... you're wrong!
: You only ever had one life...
: And it's your life, not his!
: Rey! You have to listen to me!
: Enough, Shinn! You've betrayed the Chairman, which makes you my enemy... and I don't listen to enemies!
: Yes, I might fighting against ZAFT... but I... I don't want to fight you!
Now to wait a turn to try and convince him
While thats going on, everyone starts position closer to the Minerva Aquarion and Gravion dispatch the last Gwadon.
Getter and Gainer also help whittle Reys HP down for when Shinn needs to destroy the Legend.
Reys AI is hardwired to go after Kira, so they trade blows. Talia, meanwhile, is doing the same with Murrue.
Lets see now
: Listen to me, Rey!
: Youve all betrayed Zaft! And if youll stand against the Chairman, Ill strike you down!
: Youre wrong, Rey! We never turned against the Plants or Zaft! We just cant accept the Chairmans methods!
: And that makes you my enemies ! Dont expect any mercy!
: Are you actually OK with the Destiny Plan, Rey?!
: Didnt you wish for a peaceful world, without war? The Chairmans trying to make that world a reality.
: However, righteous that he is, you still refused to believe in him!
: There were so many things I didnt understand so I wanted to try and find answers for myself, as part of ZEUTH.
: Honestly, I might still believe in the Chairman on some aspects
: Just as Im sure that some people in Zaft also have doubts about him but keep on fighting, like I did!
: And, yet, theyre still Zaft while you turned on us!
: No! What I want is for us to figure out whats truly right together!
: So stop attacking and lets talk this out, Rey!
: Im afraid I dont have that kind of time. You see, I was born with shortened telomeres.
: Im a clone just like the late Rau le Creuset.
: Rau le Creuset the man who tried to destroy the world because of his limited life-span as a clone !
: He cursed his destiny, fought and died trying to destroy everything. But who was truly to blame?
: Beings like us and men like you, whove lost their loved ones to war the world itself is to blame for creating such people.
: We must remake it all, so no more kids like us will be born !
: How can there be peace with someone having control over the dreams and future of others?!
: Yes a lot of awful things happened to me but I could still decide how I wanted to live my own life! I could think and judge for myself!
: You cant let others decide whats right for you, Rey! You need to understand that!
: Youve grown strong, Shinn
: If the Chairman and I could look at things the way you do, perhaps we would be trailing a different path
: But weve made our choice and our only option is to keep going, eliminating any whod stand in our way!
: Then Ill put a stop to you, Rey. Ill do this because Im your friend!!
: And then I want us to talk to each other again: about everything thats happened and what well do from here on out!
Lets fast forward to the next turn as now we just need to position ourselves while waiting for Shinn to get his move back.
: Rey !
: Theres nothing more to be said. Weve both chosen our paths, so all thats left is to fight.
: But even if our paths are different, that doesnt mean fightings our only option!
: I wanna talk to you some more, Rey, so Ill have to shut you down!
: Thats what Im fighting for!!
: Gil I
: Hes still alive, Shinn dont give up.
: Youll get another chance to talk to him once this wars over!
: Yeah all the more reason why Im putting an end to this!
Fast forward one more turn, as I couldnt well fight the Minerva without Shinn taking part in it.
Time to wrap up this long-ass mission!
: A peace created by controlling people is no peace at all!
: And anyone who thinks that isn't one I want guiding the future! I'll fight all who would seal this world into darkness!
: You sat in your comfy place watching us fight the aliens, but now you want humans to fight?!
: We're not letting you take our world with that attitude!
: Cpt. Gladys, this battle is only going to lead our race into an even worse war!
: Lt. Amuro...
: That's Amuro Ray? Char Aznable's nemesis?
: Chairman Durandal, if you can hear me, you have to stop this!
: I can't. Besides, my victory would also put an end to the battle between you and the Red Comet.
: The battle between me and Char ?
: That's right. The two of you are the ones who will destroy the world... unless you disappear right now.
: Whod ever be convinced by such arbitrary reasoning ?!
: Gilbert Durandal, there's no way a man like you can lead the world!
Amuro attacking: You seek to control even the peoples lives, Durandal?!
: Don't you realize we're already heading into the Black History?
: If this war doesn't stop, humanity will end itself!
: I'll end this myself, Durandal.
: And gain the advantage for Axis, right, Haman?
: The existing order needs to crumble for a new one to arise.
: And you'll be the one to orchestrate that, Haman?
: Thats still to be decided but only after this battle ends! You can't have this world, Durandal!
: We can't trust anyone with our planet who'd leave it in danger to win their own war!
: We won't let you sacrifice any more lives for your own greed!
: Oh, come on! What sounds good to you about taking away everyone's humanity and freedom?
: There's no peace that can come from that! I don't believe it!
: To live is to find your own path, your own way.
: If you don't value that, you're not worthy of leadership! And I'll keep you from it!
: No one person can shape the world to their own desires!
: A guide and a ruler are two different things and you need to understand that!
: You've come, Athrun...
: I'm here to fight for what I believe in. And that's not letting your plans take flight!
: I had a sense when I appointed you to FAITH... that it would come to this.
: Begone, Athrun. Nothing can stand in my way, no matter what I have to do.
: That's why we're not letting you take this world! I stood beside you once, and that's why I have to stop you now!
- I wont be misled anymore, Chairman!
- Cpt. Gladys this is the answer I found.
: Please, stop this! We don't have time to waste!
: You can't reach them, Renton. All they can think about is fighting.
: Damn it! Why don't you understand? And the world's about to end!
: This war is leading us back into the Black History. To the mistake we're doomed to repeat...!
: I'll stop that if it costs me my life! It's my duty!
- Destiny isnt something to be determined by others! You shape it with your own hands!
- Both future and destiny can be changed such is the power of humans!
: It won't take much. You just need to back off and the world will sort itself out.
: Theres something inherently wrong with a life thats too methodical imposing your ideas onto people, you might as well be killing them yourselves!
: Ya can cover it up in all the fancy words you want, but you aint foolin my nose!
: And my nose says this stinks! It stinks of making people suffer!
: Here you are, Kira Yamato...
: I'll put a stop to you, Chairman Durandal ! For everyone in the world!
: You're just a soldier. You may stop me, but you can't change the world.
: All you're doing is letting it sink even deeper into chaos.
: Your words wont make me give in to doubt ! I've long since made up my mind on this!
- The future isnt built by the peoples genes or their destiny!
- None of us want a future under someones control!
- Chairman Durandal! Well put a stop to your designs!
- Durandal: I expected you to stand in my way
- Durandal: Someone like you isnt needed anymore, Kira Yamato!
: This is all too complicated! Let me tell you what an idiot like me knows!
: What you're doing is oppressing everyone in the world, and I aint gonna take it!
: You're just pushing forward with your selfish plans, not thinking about all the people you're hurting!
: You're not remaking the world, you're just helping yourselves! Well, not anymore!
: That's... Camille?!
: Retreat, Cpt. Gladys! Or are you in support of the Destiny Plan too?
: So that's Camille Bidan the young ace of the AEUG?
: Chairman Durandal! We could have unified the Earth peacefully if you'd used your talents correctly!
: You're too kind, Camille, but I'm not that talented at all.
: But that's no reason to come up with something like the Destiny Plan that would deny people their humanity!
: And if that's really your view, I'll stop you no matter what it takes!
Camille attacking: Ill never accept your plan, Gilbert Durandal!
: Captain Gladys, you fought with us all that time! Why are you doing this now?
: Loran, I... I have a duty as a soldier of ZAFT.
: Just like yours to the Moon Race.
: That's why you're supporting the Destiny Plan? It'll rob people of the ability to live as humans!
: I won't accept that! I have to stop Chairman Durandal for all of mankind!
Loran attacking: People deciding the fate of others thats horrible!
: We've got a lot of jerks trying to change the world to their own dumbass ideas.
: I letting any of yall take our freedom, no matter what you dress it up as!
Holland attacking: I aint giving in to fate! I learned that from those kids!
: Lacus Clyne. I always knew you'd oppose me.
: I suppose you didn't feel anything listening to Meer's last song.
: You're the one responsible for her pain. Your unyielding presence gave her an impossible dream.
: If you consider that justification for the Destiny Plan, you know why I oppose you.
: If your world has no place for dreams, it has no place for people to truly live!
- A world where people lives are determined at birth
it is a mistake!
- The destiny of humans isnt something that can be determined by their genes!
: For people, for the world... you can't fool me with those platitudes!
: What humanity wants is peace and freedom! Definitely not a world ruled by one person!
: Capt. Gladys... if the Chairmans aboard, Ill have to sink the Minerva!
: Lt. Quattro...
: You cannot stop me as single ordinary pilot...
: Char Aznable, you have to die so the future world can thrive!
: I'll do all I can... and if I do die here, I was simply never meant for anything greater!
: Gilbert Durandal... Youre misusing the strength you possess, so Im forced to strike you down!
- Durandal, you will not have dominion over the childrens future!
- Destiny is something we ourselves create, Durandal!
: Humanity needs a guide... not a ruler!
: You won't be either! What you're doing will only cause more suffering!
: Capt. Gladys, I...
: Here we are, Shinn...
: This is truly a shame, Shinn Asuka. I thought you and Rey would be by my side together.
: I... I'm doing this because I believe in it, not because anyone else decided!
: That's why I can't support the Destiny Plan if it'll take away everyone's humanity and freedom!
: If that's your decision... then I have no use for you.
: But I'm still alive! I'll keep being me, no matter what anyone says!
: If you can't handle that, Chairman Durandal... then I'll fight you!
- Ill create a world without war, in my own way!
- Im not your puppet any more, Chairman!
Before we end, heres a list of a few other exclusive lines for people that didnt attack:
- Roger: Destiny cannot be decided on a genetic level
thats unacceptable! / Dominating the fate of others
- Neo: It started with that ship and now it ends with it, eh?
- Garrod: The hell do I care about destiny! I dont let stuff like that hold me down!
: The Minervas badly damage! Further combat should be impossible!
*The Minerva pulls back to Messiah.*
: Archangel, full speed ahead! Well immobilize the Minerva and capture the Chairman!
*The Archangel follows.*
: Talia !
: I know! Ready the Tännhauser!
: Damn it, a trap?!
: Ready the Lohengrin! At least take them with us!
: You wont touch the Archangel!
: Tännhauser, FIRE!!
: That MS blocked the Tännhauser?!
: Col. Roanoke!
: Im alright, Murrue! This time I really did make the impossible possible!
: Im not going anywhere again!
: Muu your memories are back?! (His name plate's changed, too)
: Thisll be over soon we'll have to save our reunion proper until then.
: Understood, Muu.
: Neo whos Muu?
: Thats my real name, Stella Im not Neo anymore.
: I understand but Ill be fine! Shinns here to protect me!
: (Thats a relief. Shinn Im counting on you to succeed Neo Roanoke on this.)
: Captain! That last Tännhauser shot was all that Minerva had left!
: Withdraw the Minerva from the frontlines and escort the Chairman back to the Messiah! Afterwards, all hands are to abandon ship!
: Captain ?
: Sorry to lay this on you, Arthur, but take care of everyone.
: I have to go with him.
: And I wont change my mind.
: Understood. Leave everything to me!
: The Minervas retreating?!
: Ill go after them !
: All federation and Allied Army troops destroyed! Combat in the surrounding region also seems to have stopped!
: The Messiahs also fallen silent. Looks like they dont have the power to keep fighting back.
: So, its over
: No, not yet.
: Im going.
: Where, Shinn?!
: Reys still on the Messiah. I I have to go after him!
: Im coming with you, Shinn. Im worried about Kira.
: Shinn, Athrun be careful
: Oi, that guy hes just rushing off again ?!
: Dont say that. Hes also got a job to do.
: Commander Joule, I thank you for your assistance.
: I just went and made a decision for myself, concerning whatd be best for the Plants and for the world
: Therere some units approaching ? Those are
*The Palace Athene and Bolinoak Sammahn show up. Setsuko route only.*
: Reccoa and Sarah
: This is 2nd Lt. Reccoa Londe and MSgt. Sarah Zabiarov of the Titans.
: Were here to surrender ourselves to ZEUTH.
: Reccoa Londe
: It wont be long before the battle outside is over
: Youve no more forces to fight with.
: I honestly did not expect you to come all the way here
: Dont move.
: Youd shoot me ? Would you actually do that?
: Indeed, the Aprillius Allied Armys defeated. However, that is also the case for the Federation.
: The correctness of his ideals notwithstanding, Scirocco was still an exceptional man. Without either one of us, the world will be lost to chaos.
: Even should humanity eliminate the Coralians and go on living in this multi-dimensional world, all that awaits it is more self-destructive conflict.
: That world might well be the one of the Black History.
: Perhaps. But we may also choose a different outcome so long as this world allows us to do that!
: But no one will do so or perhaps its best to say they cant do so.
: People forget and repeat their mistakes.
: Who is truly capable of declaring we will never do such a thing or lead the world down this path again?
: None can. Not you, not Lacus Clyne, Diana Soreil nor the Red Comet.
: I loved someone once.
: Ah ?
: However, we were genetically unable to conceive a child and, due to that, we ended up going our separate ways
: I also had a friend. And he, cursing his destiny, went on to try and destroy the world in his hatred.
: Rau le Creuset
: And so I realized: I needed to seize destiny with my own hands if I was to prevent the tragedies that befell us from occurring again.
: And that was the Destiny Plan
: Correct. By truly knowing themselves, humanity could finally move towards greater heights. It is by their ignorance that humans are led by greed and, thus, society is ruled chaos.
: Its no wonder you took this path if such was the conclusion you reached
: But theres always something you can do so long as you dont give up and keep working! I learned that during these battles!
: And now I do believe were capable of understanding each other and changing for the better!
: Kira Yamato
: Thats why I choose future! No matter how painful it can be, I cannot stand the thought of an unchanging world!
: How arrogant as befits the ultimate Coordinator.
: Youre the arrogant one! Im just another human...one of the dwellers of this world, no different from the others! The same goes for Lacus!
: And because I understand that I have to put you down!
: But I wonder which future the people want: yours or mine?
: Were you to kill me now, what would you do when the world once again falls to chaos?
: Im ready to face whats ahead.
: Ive changed along with the world. Ill go on fighting!
*Someone steps out of the shadows.*
: Gil !
: Rey ! Shoot him in the name of the future we both desire!
: What are you waiting for ?! This is your duty!
: Gil I
: Rey, stop!!
: Youre no one but yourself! You alone have say on how you want your life to be!
: Listen to me, Rey!
: He shot him
: Gil Im so sorry but his future is the one I
: I see
: Kira he !
: I told you to leave here, Talia
: But Im the one who drove you to this
: Please perish the thought
: Still, the Destiny Plan couldve prevented ours and Raus misfortune from befalling others
: The path you wish to tread is not mine You mustnt accompany me any longer.
: You too, Rey
: Talia Athrun, Shinn look after him
: But I
: Live life as best you can, Rey You heard what Kira Yamato said, didnt you?
: Aah aaah
: Lets go, Rey youve made a choice in how you want to live your life
: And if you ever need it, Ill help you look for answers just as Camille and ZEUTH did for me.
: This is where we truly part, Talia
: Kira Yamato Athrun, Shinn
: If you believe you can overcome destiny, then do so
: But you must be careful the Black Charismas
: Whats going on?!
: That was an attack from outside?!
: What was that?! Are there still more Fed troops?!
: No, that was a Satellite Cannon blast!
: Frost Brothers!
: Paptimus Scirocco, the one who tried to manipulate us, has died !
: Gilbert Durandal! Your life is ours!
: Feel the weight of our anger and our hatred!!
: The Messiahs command center!
: You bros still havent given up?!
: This was just our own little ceremony.
: One way or another, Messiahs already finished.
: ! Im detecting a massive energy build-up coming from Earths shadow!
: What did you say?!
Location: Ginga Go, Bridge
: Oratorio nº 8s microwaves struck a direct hit on the Messiah.
: Furthermore, all troops engaged in combat in the surrounding area appear to have retreated.
: Scirocco kept them stalled for us a shame that he didnt last until the Oratorio was in place.
: Rerun the numbers for the Messiah drop trajectory. We cannot afford any mistakes on this one.
: Calculations complete. One more blast and the Messiahs impact on the Command Cluster is certain.
: The Scubs core has started to emerge in our world. That shock should have more than enough force to eliminate it.
: If we can successfully destroy the Command Cluster, our operation will be practically complete.
: (And once this battles over, Anemone will also be free to go Then )
: Now that the Aprillius Allied Armys no more, Id expect only them and ZEUTH to stand in our way.
: Troops are already being deployed to form a defensive perimeter around the ship and the Oratorio.
: Eliminate any and all interlopers. If need be, the Ginga Go will also enter the fray.
: We will now begin the final stage of the Coralian Extermination: Operation Nenokatas.
: Target the Messiah for another Oratorio nº 8 shot and drop it right onto the Command Cluster the core of the Scub Coral.
: The drop point is the South Pole! It is there that the heart of the invading corals located!
: Löwen and Schlan seem to have done their job quite nicely.
: Durandal and Scirocco are gone, leaving only Dewey
: There are still two three unknowns left. This should make for some good fun.
: Hmhm hahaha
: I wonder what will happen next
