Once more, I dream in epics. . .
GUNDAM: THE DAWN

"Toshiro, what have you done?"

On a college campus that looks rather like RIT, transfer student Toshiro Damagi makes an astonishing discovery when two space alloys are combined.

"It's a monofilliment that can be woven into a metal of great tensile strength!"

"What do we call it?"

"Well, since this is Proffesor Gunn's class and Damagi discovered it, how about Gundam?"


The implications of Gundam are clear to many people. . .

"Just think, Terri, you could use Gundam and build your space colonies with less than a third of the resources you would have had to use!"

"You could make mobile armor that could withstand anything our current army could throw at it."

"Why would you want to do that, Rabe?"


And then the government gets involved.

"Toshiro! There were men, they've taken Papa!" cries Kitty Gunn, the Proffesor's daughter.

The implications are becoming clear - Gundam can save the world or destroy it.

"They want Gundam? I'll give them Gundam!"

And for the first time - Gundam will go into battle.

"Toshiro, what have you done?"

Oh... wow!

This is your dream? Schway!

I wish I could draw, it looked just like one of those previews you get on DVD's - Toshiro as geek-glasses, scruffy dark-haired hero, Rabe with curly dark hair (will probably be the one all the yaoi fans pair Toshiro with), Terri the Quatre-style blond who is seen getting shot by a firing squad just before Toshiro's glasses do an Une going opaque thing as he says "They want Gundam? I'll give them Gundam!"

Kitty is your basic cute little girl with red hair. It's her voice at the end (fade to black with the mobile suit rising from the slab/table/truck bed/whatever) saying "Toshiro, what have you done?"

O_O

Wow! Really? Yes, of course! I'd be honored

^__^ Yes, really, though i'm not sure how soon I can get it done. I'm quite psyched about it, question is time >_<

Sounds good to me!

(Although, is this the AC timeline or another?)

(Wait, don't answer that. I'll go look it up. Argh, I'm getting rusty on my Gundam trivia...)

Heh, I was going to call it BC - Before Colony :)

Very short, but I really felt it. The gov strikes again. Excellent work.

I swear, it played out just like watching a DVD preview.

a quick question... where does this take place? and who says what?

"Just think, Terri, you could use Gundam and build your space colonies with less than a third of the resources you would have had to use!"

"You could make mobile armor that could withstand anything our current army could throw at it."

"Why would you want to do that, Rabe?"


^_^ I'm still working on it. I want to give it my best effort, so it'll take a while, hope you don't mind waiting
just_ruth From: just_ruth Date: February 15th, 2007 01:07 pm (UTC) (Link)
Meant to get back to you before this, but I got distracted. I also had to try and chase down the images in my brain - it was either a workroom or a classroom - Terri's laptop was projecting a holographic blue print image of the colony above a table. For all I know, there's probably one that can do this already :)

Toshiro speaks to Terri - Rabe doodling at the table on a piece of paper (what a concept!) and doodles the head of a Gundam.

Don't worry about time.

Hey no worries! I know you've got more important things at the mo.

Thanks for the info. I hope I'll be able to live up to your imagination ^_^'
