**Anya Alstreim was a girl no older than twelve, yet she had earned a spot as the Knight of Three.
She's 15. Same age that Nunnally and Kaguya are in R2.
**"It was mainly because of Earl Floyd's Lancelot
**His geass froze them all in place. Rolo then casually walked up to one soldier, and popped the pins from a couple of grenades fastened to his utility belt.
Rolo's Geass, like all Geass, is a purely psychic ability, and only stops the *awareness* of passing time. He can't lengthen the fuses of grenades, as that's a manipulation of physical space. This is explicitly shown in the episode that this chapter is equivalent to, when Rolo chases after Lelouch's custom Burai and is fired upon from someone at a very long range.
**"That was Chizuka."

Another great chapter. First off, the scene with Suzaku and Ben was very well written and thought-out. It really showed the core of the problems of the Social Darwinist mindset and how hard it would be to promote change. I really wish the showed explored Suzaku's life as an Honorary Brit and his efforts to improve it to make things easier for Japan. The show really played it safe with his character in R2 until the FLEYA bombing. I think that's why most fans (including myself) hate him. His role in the show was nothing but a glorified traitor and antagonist.
Never in R2 did it show him trying to improve things for Japan or try and make Brittainia a more moral country. He was never put in an ethical delema where his scrupals were put to the test except when he was lying to Nunnally. What would he have done if the Emperor ordered him to massacare civilians like Clovis did in Shinjuku? If he defied orders, he would have lost his rank and there would have been nothing he could do. He wasn't charismatic, had no social leadership qualtiies, and had nothing in tactical genius. All he really was good for was piloting a Knightmare and fighting. He only gained his rank because he had the Emperor's favor. In honesty, if he had become Knight of One and took control of Area 11, I imagine he would have completely bankrupted the economy and plunge the whole area in social unrest.
If you do more chapters with Suzaku where he isn't simply an antagonist for Zero, I really hope you follow with what you've done here and explore the challenges he faces to make social improvement. An example would be what if he found out that a Noble was committing horrible actions with Numbers but was ordered into silence by the royalty. If he talks, he loses favor but if he doesn't, atrosities would continue. That's only an example. I personally hope you do more with Suzaku's character live you've done here.
Also, I kind of hope you keep Zero in his new makeshift costume here. It's darker and dirtier than his charismatic purple/black costume. Its design really shows that Zero has been through hell and isn't the man he was. I actually hope you keep him in it for the rest of the story. Gas masks and black ripped-up cloaks are just naturally scary. I can't wait to see how he'll free his army and just how he will lead them. Like you said, I'm sure it'll be quite a ride!

Good chapter, but a few inaccuracies: Anya is the same age as Nunnally, i.e. about fifteen in the second season, and it's Gino who is the Knight of Three, Anya is the Knight of Six. Just thought you might want to know.

Another great chapter. True, the pacing was rather slow but all that did was give the reader time to soak in the gloom and depression. There was a lot of it here but it was all necessary. From Milly's melancholy to Rivalz' refusal to be swallowed by sorrow to Lelouch's lamentation, everything adds to the atmosphere you've set up here. I congratulate you for being able to pull this off without making it as emo or whiny.
And speaking of Lelouch (I couldn't resist that jab), you've done a great job presenting his character change from brilliant but lazy high school student to the rebel mastermind. I figured you would have had him become Zero simply out of revenge for Britainnia killing Shirley but you instead show him acquiring much more complex reasons. There has been a fine presentation of his journey from the comfort of Ashford Academy and his 'brother' to the slums as a hobo to finally to the Zero identity. I imagine some people might not like the middle part as it's awfully pathetic but I see it as completely necessary to show that Lelouch is not who he once was.
I really can’t wait to see how he will handle his new rebellion. In my opinion it will be more cutthroat than the one presented in R2. Because of his concern for Nunnally’s wellbeing and safety, Lelouch really held back in most of his actions. The guy shut down and fled to China to gather forces when confronted with the prospect of fighting his sister instead of causing chaos for the Brits. Heck, he even went out of his way not to kill Suzaku, Anya, and Geno went they visited Ashford simply because he was scared that it would lead to the Emperor using Nunnally as a shield. In my belief, the new Lelouch will simply use his super ninja-maid for assassination missions and pick off every Knight of the Round or lead them into traps to capture them. The show has shown that without Nunnally holding him back, there really is no stopping Lelouch.
By the way, that last part was a plea on my part. I really want to read a story where Lelouch uses Sayoko in important missions. I really haven’t seen one except for ‘CG: Megiddo’. So I’m crossing my fingers hoping that Sayoko sneaks into Britainnian military facilities and assassinating the commanders for the military. Heck, it would be like most levels in the ‘Hitman’ series of video games. She knocks out a guard, takes their uniform, and walks in through the gate to poison the drinks for the generals/knights/royalty or planting a remote-control explosive in their personal vehicles or just garroting them in their sleep and just walking outside without anyone knowing she was ever there. Dreams, it can happen. Please make it happen.
I really can’t see Suzaku surviving in this fanfic for long. The new Lelouch knows just how dangerous the guy is and I really doubt will handle him with kid’s gloves. However, I imagine that there will still be some trouble since he doesn’t know about the ‘Live’ command. Once that thing kicks in, Suzaku is pretty much unbeatable. This is why Lelouch would simply order Sayoko to kill him nice and quietly, but that’s just my opinion.
The main wildcard in this story is how does the new Lelouch feel about Nunnally. He has zero emotional attachment to her; but then does he actually want one? Could Lelouch send her to her death or does he want to? Since Emperor Charles’ real goal in the show is to capture C.C. and invoke Ragnarok (which would never have worked according to the show’s director), I can easily see him sending her to Area 11 to try and draw Lelouch and C.C. into a trap. She’s still an unknown in your fic that I’m looking forward to see what part she’ll play in your fanfic. Will Lelouch see her as just another adversary or as a McGuffin Girl that he needs to take into his care? I’m looking forward to finding out.
Also I’m looking forward to some Kallen in bondage scenes in the next chapter. Please don’t discourage me and not have any. Heh. But seriously, I really enjoyed the scenes with her grandmother. It actually fills in a pretty large plothole over who taught her to be such a battle goddess. I know Suzaku had Tohdoh teach him but who taught Kallen? Thanks for answering this. As always, I’m looking forward to the next chapter. I hope it comes out soon! Please don’t leave us waiting too long!
