Dammit Amuro! I'm a mechanic, not a magician!

That'd be interesting, and unfortunately, wasn't what 08th MS Team cracked
up to be (but was somewhat hyped up to be).

Or in a Artificial NewType Labs? Can you imagine all the pain and anguish
in that Drama? A backdrop to Four's Own OAV perhas?

"Sir, the three GMs that blew up by themselves... They were all piloted by
three brothers, and their mother saw the event happen on ColNews Live..."

"Where's the fourth brother?"

"There is no fourth brother sir."

"Dam crappy GMS!"

Hmm. Wasn't that what Kelly Layzner was to a point? And there is that
Oldsmobile Army Deal.

That mebby interesting. How's the following:

Captain of a Federation Warship, to boldly go to their eventual destruction
at the hands of Char Azanable.

The fateful tale of all the clones of El Ple, or those that survived.

The tale of NT Dolphins.

Tale of two Lunarian Cities, or two colonies.

Or better yet, from the MS AI system, provided there is one. What would the
AI think? Would it think that the war is right? Or would it just sing
"daisies, daisies..."

To another topic, I'd nominate the following for the oskar categoriges:

Best Actor:
  Amuro Rey
  Bernard Wiseman
  Gato (hey, being a one dimensional cardboard is very VERY hard!)

Best Actress:
  Four Murasame
  Lara Sun
  Fa Yuri
  Chien Agi
  Christina McKenzie

Best Supporting Actor:
  Hayato Kobayashi
  Bright Noah
  ...Can't think much here, same for Best Supporting Actress...

Will Shakespear be in love come UC era? No one knows, like how no one gives
a hoot about the center of tootsie pop.
