After a full week of preparation, the day finally came. Celestia's Gate attacked Lowee's capital, right just as they had planned.
But our heroes were ready for them. Noire led our brave adventurers to the front lines, where they clashed with all of CG's top brass, and then that masked guy swooped in and stomped them and blah blah blah...
"You're ruining the narration, Neptune."
"Awww, who cares? If I wasn't there, it probably wasn't important!"
The sound of Blanc's fist slamming against a desk.
"Those cultist bastards totally wrecked my city, I'd call that pretty frickin' important!"
"Then why'd no one invite me?! Seriously, the whole chapter went by without so much as a cameo! C'mon, who's the main character here?!" Neptune whined, flailing like a child as she did.
Blanc slammed her desk again, this time with both hands.
"SHUT UP! IT'S NOT MY FAULT YOU SLEPT THROUGH THE WHOLE DAMN THING!"
Neptune winced in response to Blanc's range.
"Yikes, Blanny. You really need to chillax. It's only been two days since your daring rescue."
Blanc breathed in, like she was going to yell some more, but it turned into an exasperated sigh, instead.
"I can't 'chillax'." She spoke with a slightly condescending tone and made airquotes here. "I barely had any time to start reconstruction before I had a bunch of CG sympathizers on my ass, protesting in the streets! The dumbasses seem to think they were justified in their attack! What bullshit!"
"Well, I mean, you did drop that oxygen whatever on your own people."
"Tch! That was Mutou, not me!"
"You kinda launched the ship and made the plans to. You kinda set all of it in motion. Just sayin'."
"RRRAAAAAAAAGHH!!" Blanc just flipped over her desk as she screamed. "GET THE HELL OUT IF YOU'RE JUST GONNA TALK SHIT LIKE THAT!"
"Welp, that's my cue to leave~!"
Neptune ran away, but she was smirking the entire time in that Neptune way.
Outside Lowee's basilicom, a certain redhead from Celestia's Gate was leaning back in an alley, watching various sympathizers protest. In particular, she had her eye on a certain little blonde girl who seemed speak particularly aggressively about the CPUs. Jeanie watched on with a cold, unfeeling expression.
The sound of footsteps caught her attention. Someone was in the alley with her.
A silhouetted woman, clutching a stack of flyers to her chest. Judging by her silhouette, she seemed like some kind of cleric.
"Excuse me, ma'am. Have you heard the good news?"
"...'Good news', huh?" Jeanie says, taking a flyer as it's offered to her.
She glances down at it, her eyes widening as she reads. She looks back at the silhouetted woman with her cold stare.
"Surely, you jest." She says, offering the flyer back to her. The woman shakes her head. She refuses to take back the flyer.
"Keep it. I'm sure you'll come around, eventually. Fufufu, until then..."
Jeanie gives a small frown as the stranger goes on her way, into the protesting crowd to distribute more flyers.
"...I'd better report this."
Jeanie pulls out her phone to make a very important call...
Some hours later, two meetings take place, in two different locations, within two different factions.
Mutou gathers the CG elite in Donut City for a special meeting...
Histoire calls an open meeting in Planeptune Tower...
Each of them, in front of their respective groups, threw down a flyer and a very familiar chip...
The story continues...
