Walter: Seras’ catboy. You can talk. You’re with them. The ones behind the artificial vampires.

Schrödinger: Right in three! And I have some instructions for you.

Walter: If you think I would ever betray Sir Integra–

[swoosh]

–you’re crazy.

Schrödinger: Ah, but I know something you don’t know.

A list of I-Jin from the R.O.D continuity. And surely you all know about this guy by now…

Yomiko: Remember to be careful! When I destroyed the library, it wiped out the archive of DNA…

Integra: …but our enemies have stolen samples in the past. The ones used to create I-jin.

The clones of exceptional figures, with powers related to the abilities of the originals…

Like Genjo Sanzo, author of Journey to the West, who gained the powers of his main character.

Or Jean-Henri Fabre, the pioneer entomologist. Controlled insects, and molted when badly hurt, shedding the injured body for a young fresh one.

The I-jin of Mata Hari, exotic dancer and spy…could slip right through walls, and wield EE cleavage unsupported.

And then there was the I-jin of H. G. Wells…but you remember this one.

If the Library has turned on us, they may have given copies of other samples to our enemies. There is no way of knowing which figures they can still make into I-jin…

…or what powers those might have.

Yomiko: I should get going. I’ve already been here too long. We’re getting out of the country tonight. Thank you for everything.

Do you mind if I disguise as you again? I can’t exactly walk around London as myself…

Walter: Go ahead.

Unsettling though it is.

Yomiko: Sorry about that.

Yomiko: I didn’t want to do it, Walter! If there had been any other way…! But there wasn’t. And the books understood that.

They told me they weren’t afraid. They were willing to be martyrs! For me! It would have been safer to sneak away, but I had to honor their sacrifice, had to…

I stayed!

[CHOKE]

Walter: Shh…there, there…

Yomiko: I listened while they died!

Integra: Readman does not enjoy death. The only reason she would have killed so many is if she truly believed it was necessary. If the British Library did something so horrible that she had no choice.

Downstairs:

Yomiko: So you understand now, Walter?

Walter: I do.

If the one in danger had been Integra…I would have done the same.

Seras: What a nice story.

Pip: Yeah. Okay, now for the point.

Integra: For a paper user, books have feelings. When Readman set that fire, it wasn’t simply destruction of her property. To her, it was mass murder.

Pip: Ow.

Seras: …okay, that’s less nice.

Wrapping up the Good Omens crossover with an appearance from the Horsepersons, plus the Death from Sandman. (She’s had brief appearances in Shine before.)

The Four Horsepersons of the Apocalypse meet for lunch.

Famine: Nothing for me, thanks.

Death: Ooh! Do you have milkshakes, with those crazy straws?

Famine: has adapted to the industrialized world by encouraging fad diets.

Famine: So…you’ve all heard the rumors about what’s coming, I suppose?

Pollution: took over from Pestilence after the discovery of penicillin.

Pollution: The apocalypse? Hah! Probably a false alarm, just like the last one.

DEATH: Cuter when the hood and cloak are off.

Death: The last one was real. It just got…interrupted. This one might just go as planned.

War: Beautiful. Just don’t get too close.

War: Oh, I think it will. This time it’s going to go down the old-fashioned way. My way.

…just as soon as he gets through fanboying.

Major: OMG it’s War! I LOVE war! I love holocaust, I love blitzkrieg, I love aggressive war, I love defensive war, I love sieges, I love breakthroughs, I love withdrawing, I love mopping up, I love retreat, I love every aspect of war that takes place on this earth!
