Oh, a nice guess. Since we've gotten so many submissions with these contents, I have to tell the performers for this time and the future ones that "they should honor their promise to stick to being Technical".
Hmmhmm. Management and administration are so much trouble, huh?
While IPDs that have had outbreaks have been confirmed to actually be IPDs, are there also potential IPDs that haven't actually had outbreaks or were enlisted in Lady Cloche's Fan Club among them?
And if there were, what were they doing when Metafalica was sung? Did they sing along all the others despite not knowing they were IPDs?
Of course there're IPDs that didn't have outbreaks among the people. But since these people knew they were Reyvateils, they weren't surprised they could sing. As for being aware of if they were being Third Generations or IPDs... in my case, I felt all warm and fuzzy when Lady Cloche began singing Metafalica, but she also conveyed a lot of emotions to me. I think maybe all the others IPDs felt the same, but I don't really know if she conveyed to them more vivid images than that. I'm sure that many Reyvateils noticed they were IPDs at that moment even though they didn't know what kind of Reyvateils they were until then. And if that happened, I guess they'd have sung with Lady Cloche no matter what.
If the ceremony had continued uninterrupted, naturally I'd have moved to Aurica's body. However, I think this would have required some time to be completed, as since this is basically restructuring the entirety of the contents of her Soulspace, the time it would have been needed for it to be performed to completion would have depended entirely on how much willpower Aurica had at the time.
Ah, I see! That was the time when you tried hijacking me, Miu. I was sure that if we completely fused, we'd have turned into a Miu with my personality. But being able to wield all your power would be amazing! With that I could become the Holy Maiden at once and take over the Church!
That has quite the frightening implications... Honestly, I'm glad it didn't happen in the end.
Built on the surface of the land?
...But that wasn't what you meant, correct?
Or maybe do you mean about how it keeps standing even now? Maybe it has been standing as if it sprouted from the surface of the land, even now? At least I don't really think that it's floating. In one of the previous issues, we talked about this, saying that it keeps existing maybe because the Wills of the Planet allow it, but exactly how this happened is something that I don't know. Still, if the Orgel of Origins that was lodged at the foot of Ar tonelico had disappeared, the part where we live would have collapsed already and we would have died, so I'm certain that it still exists down there. Thus, is because of its existence that the Tower still keeps standing right now.
For the time being, I don't have a concrete answer to this, though well, this is natural, given that no one has seen the underside of the Sea of Death since 700 years ago.
I'm throwing a question I think I can ask to anyone aside of the people with a three-digits age.
A quick question: a Reyvateil basically never has any memories of what happens in her Cosmosphere, but would she be able to remember the events taking place in it if she could control the shallower strata of it like Luca, Jakuri and Misha do in the games?
Especially Luca, who learned to control the space of her Cosmosphere thanks to her training as a Dive Therapist, so I'm thinking it'd be hard to retain these memories without any training, but on the other hand I'm also wondering how is it that Luca didn't know what her Mind Guardian Gengoro looked like.
I'm guessing there might be some causes and circumstances behind that, but even so, wouldn't a Reyvateil be able to keep the memories of the events in her Cosmosphere if she had abilities like these?
And finally it's my turn to appear!!
Yes, that a Mind Guardian and their master Reyvateil can meet is an extremely rare happening! No, it'd be better to say that only happens in special cases! After all, it wouldn't be an exaggeration to say that Mind Guardians are like another self of the Reyvateils. Existences that protect them from behind and support them. You know you can't ever see your face on your own, right? The same goes for us: a Reyvateil generally never sees her own Mind Guardian. It would be as meeting another part of their personalities... remember what happened when Angel Miss Aurica and Bath Towel Miss Aurica met? That's normally very hard for that happen, and such a meeting would also cause conflict between them. In this example, the Mind Guardian that I am would always be behind both Bath Tower Miss Aurica and Angel Miss Aurica. That's why they never saw me. The only times in which the Mind Guardian would appear before the person herself... are the times in which the person herself is denying everything that makes her. So the goal of we Mind Guardians would be "save oneself, and support oneself". Denying oneself is contrary to that goal, and thus we would become the other part of a conflict if that ever happened. That's the gist of it.
O-Okay, that was it! Did you understand!?
At the least say it as if you had answered that question on your own...
There have been warrior Reyvateils like Cocona in the past. Are any others like her out there?
And these people can also fight and use Song Magic at the same time. Is that even possible?
Of course there are. But since generally they focus on singing Song Magic, fighting at the same time becomes very difficult for them. Normally, warrior Reyvateils are also physically strong girls despite being able to sing. Still, since Song Magic has a greater war potential during battle, it's normal for them to dedicate mostly to singing.
Historically, it seems there was a Maiden around 200 years ago that was called Lady Illusha. There are many books that extol her as a war heroine, and I have read several of them. She is one of the people I have admired the most.
Somehow, it seems we got many deep submissions today.
Huhu, looks like our war tactics were a complete success.
From next issue, let's give our all for everyone out there.
And thus the Golden Week has started. Where are you all going out to? In my case... I guess I'll continue Diving everyday into the world of work... but if anyone out there is going on a trip or doing something fun, please make sure to send a submission about it to the Question Corner! Everyone in the staff will be looking forward to reading your fun contributions!!
