World War Vignettes: Rome 2/2 published on 1 Comment on World War Vignettes: Rome 2/2

Robin is remembering this confrontation from three years ago (or “last year” in-universe).

Back in Rome, where the last Nazi vampire’s ashes flicker and go out.

Robin: It’s okay. He’s gone. And I’m not going to chase you, I promise. Are you hurt?

Yumi-chan (Japanese): D-don’t make any more fire…

Robin (thinking): !! She’s not a child at all! Not only that, she looks just like that Iscariot agent I fought in Japan last year. Back when I was still using Orbo. Before I knew what the Church did to me…

Robin (Japanese): I’m not going to hurt you. I’m one of the good guys.

Robin (thinking): Maybe she is the same person. Maybe she was also part of some experiment, and it left her like this.

Yumi-chan: Yumi-chan will be good! Please don’t be mad!

Robin: Shhh. Nobody’s mad. It’s okay.

Hey, it’s Yumi! I guess she didn’t manage to get that far away before all the trouble started. Still, all things considered as the city managed to make it through the attack I guess it was as good a place as any right now.

Now I gotta wonder though how Robin will deal with All-Together Yumi if other personalities start to emerge. I expect that she’d be patient about any oddness from her if she’s under the impression that she’s the victim of some less-than-ethical experiments (which honestly isn’t that far off), but there’s still some potential problems. I doubt she has much to fear from the younger personalities directly, but trying to keep a scared or excited child quiet if she’s trying to lie low herself could be a problem. That and helping a woman as big as she is clean up if Baby Yumi takes control at an inopportune time (if Yumi actually does have a problem with that sort of thing) would be pretty awkward. Or on the other side of things with the adult personalities, Yuuki or Lily (my current name for amorous-Yumi) might decide to thank Robin in a “special” way, which could lead to an entirely different kind of awkward. Now if Yumiko were to take charge it would probably be a good thing for explanations and what-not, but who knows how Yumie would react to seeing her again? And honestly I have no idea what kind of behavior to expect from the other personalities.

Assuming Robin doesn’t just decide to leave her there, of course.

On the fire and paper thing: top-level paper users (such as Donnie and Yomiko) can reconstitute paper from ash through willpower. However, neither Maggie or Michelle are at that level due to being artificial. Anita is hinted to have the potential to one day be that awesome.

Yay Robin. Same Yumiko. Of course, then the Ijin of Martin Luther attacks Vatican City…
