Today, Lady Shurelia decided to abandon her professional duties... not actually, but since she has begun fading into dusk, I was made to work in this corner in her place.
Since I'm not as... old as Lady Shurelia, I don't have her extensive knowledge, and since I'm also so young, there might be a lot of things I can't actually talk about, but I'll still do my best.
Well then, let's begin now.
Looks like the energy known as "Symphonic Power" is quite omnipresent in the Ar tonelico world, but it's possible for it to exist physiologically in living organisms? (excluding artificial life forms like the Reyvateil Origins)
So if there were any creature that could use Symphonic Power (or magic power) to move, it should be able to disregard the laws of physics and have other similar properties, so would make everything much more convenient for that creature, but... do the materials used for transmitting Symphonic Power like Grathnode and the Songstones occur naturally, or are they more like miracles that aren't used within any living being?
Yes, I don't really understand the details, but I've never seen anything like that.
Still, the "Symphonic Power" exists in the same kind of "waves" as forces like "electromagnetic waves" and "radiation", so wouldn't it be very hard for living creatures to absorb and use them in any form? But well, it's true that there are creatures like the bats and deep-sea fish that use ultrasonic waves in the first place, so there could be some that do so.
Still, if we answer your question just like you asked it, we could equate "creatures that use Symphonic Power as energy" to "creatures that use radiation as energy", which I think's pretty unlikely. But well, there are many things we still don't know about the world, but at least I don't think anything like that exists in Sol Ciel.
This is addressed to the Technical Service Center. Hello, Lady Shurelia. It might be a little abrupt, but my question is about the hair ornaments you're wearing. Are the hair ornaments from your design whenever you aren't wearing your Linkage based on anything?
I really want to draw you, but since I can't really understand the structure of your hair ornaments, I can't!! Please, tell me!!
I'm not Lady Shurelia, but still hi.
As for her hair ornaments, they have the motif of wind instruments and speakers. As for the wind instrument part, I think they are particularly based on flutes.
So if you give a long, hard look at a flute, you might able to draw her hair ornaments.
By the way, this isn't related at all, but the design of her Linkage seems to have a lot of "emphasis" put on a few parts, but why's that? I think it was said that to show more "dignity and style" she shouldn't have so much put on the chest, but well, maybe it's okay like this.
This is addressed to the Technical Service Center, please. In the previous issue, it was said that the effects of Grathmeld would weaken upon getting far away from the Silver Horn, so this means it'd continue receiving the magical effects of Grathmelding from the Silver Horn? (I'm borrowing some of the words from Tram (former Croart) here). Therefore, I'm guessing that Lady Shurelia and the Silver Horn are always converting the waves of the melded items into magical power, but...
During the game, Lady Shurelia never was never shown to be doing anything related to the conversion of melded items, and the melded items even continued having their effects during the time she was in coma!!
It's that the Silver Horn actually works automatically and independently of the Tower? Or when Lady Shurelia is in coma, the Grathmeld maintenance system is one that has a high level of priority and thus doesn't get suspended too?
(Shutsuu Kurosaki Daigotaro Nyuudou Masatsuki)
The Silver Horn works in a completely automatic way. So it's just as you say: you're right when you say it always sends waves to the Grathmelded items.
They both work like a cellphone base station and the cellphones themselves, where while there isn't any change we can see with our own eyes, they both keep a constant communication with each other.
However, that doesn't mean that Lady Shurelia has to be necessarily present for it to happen.
If Lady Shurelia herself had to process every single Grathmelded item in the world, I'm sure her brain would burst. And the instant she tripped during a battle, something bad, like a Grathmelded bomb exploding on its own, would happen. But you can rest easy.
As the Silver Horn does its thing automatically, the amount of power it gets from the Tower is also limited, so there's no risk of malfunction here. Its power source it's the same as that of the Plasma Bell, so it can continue receiving power normally even in times of emergency from the parts of the Tower that didn't get Suspended.
Ah, looks like I got a question closely related to me.
That form is how Tastiella was right when she and Lady Shurelia sealed Mir away... so... umm, I've forgotten how many centuries ago that was, but that's the form she had many years ago. Well, I think they scanned the appearance she had at that moment and began using it after she sealed it, so they are even using some incredible algorithms and a crazy number of polygons for her, but that doesn't mean it's impossible to put in a program that causes her to age or give her some wrinkles. But I think there wouldn't be any merit to doing that.
"This is addressed to the Technical Service Center", Lady Shurelia. I always look forward to reading this corner every issue. I always get healed by your "kyuukyuu!"!
Well then, on to the question. In the previous issue, you explained that the weather is completely controlled by the Musical Corridor, but does it reach even the areas beyond the Blastline? Particularly the Rinkernator, in which the atmosphere should be very thin, and it'd be unbearably cold if the temperature isn't regulated over there...
However, you still seem very cold whenever you wear the Linkage.
While it seems that the next submissions will be leaning more towards AT2, please make sure to not lose against them!
Of course the Musical Corridor works even beyond the Blastline. To put it simply, the control exerted by the Musical Corridor isn't just raising or lowering the temperature through the waving of the atmosphere, as it can also control the atmospheric pressure and gravity on a local scale. So since it can also control the atmospheric pressure, it's also capable of creating a small artificial atmosphere in the exoatmosphere, and it can also increase its temperature. Of course, it'd be very problematic if it couldn't control the temperature. And in the first place, of course that place gets constantly bombarded with high radiation doses, so if it couldn't put a shield around it, the radiation would be unbearable for anyone. That's why the Musical Corridor has to be controlled in a safe manner.
By the way, looks like Lady Shurelia's "kyuukyuu" has unexpectedly gotten very popular. Even two or three of the submissions I got said that "they are healed" by it... that's okay? Hmm, shall we try making a little poll, since it has been a while from the last time we did it?
Lady Shurelia's kyuukyuu! is...
[ 癒される ] Healing.
[ 特に何とも… ] Nothing special...
[ 色々言いたいことがある ] There are a few things I'd like to say about it.
So, what did you all think about my efforts this time?
I haven't gotten used to this yet, and I might have made a lot of mistakes, so I'm sorry if I made any.
But it was pretty interesting for me too, so I'd like to do it again if I get the chance.
Well, see ya later!
It's! The! Golden Week! Ahaha!
All this time, I've been doing "GW, GW!" which has been leaving me to deal with reactions such as "Golden Work?"...
Oh well, while we'll be having the Golden Week, we'll continue with this, as I said we would! At least for as long as you all support us. And in this foolish project we call the Toukousphere, I hope we can continue being together from now on.
Please, make sure to continue sending lots of submissions from now on, okay~? (Tsuchiya)
