"I see what you mean, soldier," the queen looks up for a moment then gave her attention back to the Chief albeit with an idea popped in her mind. "If I may ask who among the kids aside from Ruby and her team have you met by the way?"
Intrigued turns his head to Elsa, and he took just a few seconds to respond
" There’s Carl and his sister, Chihiro, this kid Gundam, Saijonji, Naegi, theres also Koishi and Satori but I cant count Satori as a kid …. and Shamal also haves a girl helping her … Tsumiki Mikan I guess ….. why the question, by the way ? "
"No wonder. As what I’ve noticed as well, you and her haven’t had a talk ever since I and my sister came here. Not sure when did this started but… as what I’ve heard from her, she misses you a lot. Not even the kids she takes care of were enough to cheer her up."
" In fact we didn’t had time to talk even before you came. Since she started to take care of the kids and I’m in charge of Ruby and her team, we didnt had a talk …… even we didnt had a chance to see each other "
" Sadly, we can’t just leave the ones who look up to us just to see each other …… even if is the thing both of us most wish to do "
"She?" Elsa tried to know who. "By she, you mean… Shamal?”
John just lowered his head, and with a broken voice weakly said
" Yes, queen Elsa. I mean Shamal, the other half of my heart and soul "
In a few words, what I think would be the version of each thing in each universe ….. since Im excited for RWBY vol II this thursday and Halo 2 Anniversary comming with the Master Chief collection in November.
Hunters/ Huntresses - Special Corps or ODST’s
Both prepared attack forces not trained in the usual form, is mostly like to make them best warrior than the common attack units.
Roman, Cinder gang - The Covenant
The main villains to the other’s sides, just wanting to messing around with the good guys, and so, they represent a great threat.
White Fang - The Insurrectionists
Wanting respect and freedom from the main good forces, no matter if they had to got it by violence, they can recruit more people by making them believe in their goal
The Grimm - The Flood
Annoying enemies to everyone, very dangerous when a lot came to attack, but in small groups they’re not a big deal, still ….. they have the advantage of population over their enemies
[ grimms almost killed all faunus/humans once, so theyre pretty abundant, the flood in the other hand can increase their numbers very quickly ]
And as extra, I think John-117 is Yang in the Halo verse, while Thel Vadam [ the Arbiter ] would take the place of Blake, I dunno why.
"Aren’t you giving them support already? I’m not sure what exactly happened but from how I see it and how the girls describe you, I think you’re doing fine as it is."
" Is … it …. true ?
Well, you dont have any reasons as to lie to me so, I’ll take your words as a fact my lady …. its just …. sometimes I think my mind goes broken, and I dont know why …. “
he mumbled then
" Maybe its because she isnt around ? “
"What they really deserve?" the queen got confused. "I don’t you’re a silly person at all. And do you mean by that?"
" Someone who will become a support to them. A friend they will trust ‘till the very end. Knowing myself, instead of making them feel secure, safe, only I will make them worry about my safety ….. as Im used to just throw myself to face the danger regardless the outcome "
"I haven’t been into war before nor do I know how it’s like. But as what I’ve heard from your ‘sisters’, you were a great brother to them. A great friend as well. I suppose you were doing well living normally so far."
" And I’m pleased you dont. I’ve been through that way, the way of war, I know it very well. Enough as to wish no one had to see the same as me "
" Ruby …. Yang …. they and their teammates somehow quickly got attached to me, as I do with the girls … "
walks a bit away from the queen, then turns to her
" So I feel like Im still far away to be what they really deserve. Maybe, as one girl told me once …. Im just dumbfounded and silly “
"You seem to be troubled today. Did something happened recently?"
" Nothing my lady. But as a war veteran ….. sometimes I ask myself what I should do. Try to get a new life trying to do the things Im very bad to do ?
Or just keep doing what I do best, and look for another war to fight in ?.
I dont know if the girls already told you but …. Im someone breed for combat, and build for war; Since I was a mere child that was my only reality and purpose …. war itself “
" Uh …..
since when old naval warships haves young-woman shapes ?
I dont get it “
