From afar Setsuna watched Lacus give her speech on her views of peace to the ZAFT assembly. He had subdued a guard and took his uniform to blend in with the crowd. From the shadows he had his pistol drawn and aimed at her head. His orders had been to eliminate the girl, he wasn't sure if he should follow those orders however. It didn't feel right...
//What is this, Gundam Wing?? XD
There was an echo of old words, a familiar voice in her head in a flash, in the swell of all the applause at the conclusion of her speech. Lacus closed her eyes, briefly, gathered her notes, and walked quietly off-stage…
Tilting her head as she neared the edge, she saw Setsuna, gun cocked, unsurprisingly, their eyes meeting. Hers saddened, his conflicted.
She really ought to be walking towards him instead of away, she supposed, but if she looked at him for a long enough moment, perhaps he would get the idea that they ought to speak.
…I did want to take a moment for a friend of mind and mine, who is not only a most considerate and thoughtful individual but allows me to speak freely.
She’s quite the interesting person, and I am always eager to see her work continue.
Happy birthday, Miss Debra. I wish you love and luck and life. And joy, as well. ^_^
//Don’t I have a nice muse?

//(While Arthur would like to disavow any and all knowledge of how these got here, Remaster disappoints again, here, compared to the original, personally. They decided to draw Talia’s hair to confuse fewer people (but I liked it long) and make her chest gratuitously bigger, and her nipples strangely colored. Whatever…)
*Not sure whether to be angry or relieved they can’t keep it right, honestly…*
"...I'd trade my position if I could spend time with my CO again. You're a very lucky woman, Ms. Hahnenfuss. I'm jealous." -- Arthur Trine
Shiho looked at the man thoughtfully, albeit a bit embarrassed, too. There are times that she would complain that there’s not enough quality time for her and Yzak despite working with each other. But with Arthur coming now, she’s reminded that yes, she is lucky.
“Thank you, sir. And I’m sorry… you two were a good team. If only things had been different with what happened to her.”
"I never think of myself as being part of it, you know? Only her. …Did I really contribute something? I’ve yet to think about it. It’s funny that you would say we were a team, but then, perhaps you’re in the position to understand. Thank you, Ms. Hahnenfuss.”
