    The twins were sad Shimiko had not been chosen to be the Kage but Ryuko was quite worthy, it was a choice they fully accepted. They would make sure to give her some ice cream afterward to cheer her up, they knew despite her cheering her pride would be hurt and would comfort her when they could. They would cheer as Rini was mention as becoming a Chuunin, she deserved it having advanced as far as she did. Unlike themselves, they stopped the fight to save Miyu something they did not regret, in fact they would do it again if they had to. This was when a huge shock came, suddenly they heard their names, as Ryuko said for them saving a comrades life they were being promoted to Chuunin.

    They both appeared shocked as Yua would hug Yui and cry some with the pair taking the stage, of course, some in the crowd offered boos and disgust most cheered them on. They had no idea what to say but they were asked to speak by Ryuko so they would choose to do so. Yui would move up to the microphone and clear her throat, she had no clue what to say but what was inside her heart.

    "I... can't believe we have become Chuunin, we don't feel we deserve this nearly as much as Rini however with that said you don't refuse your higher-ups promotions. We promise we will help make this nation a great and prosperous nation, a nation in which the poor or underclass will feel safe and happy. We will help change the nation, no the world to become a place of happiness for all."

    Suddenly a man would move to rush Yui with a knife in his hand, as he would lunge at her she would simply allow the man to stab her arm before he was tackled to the ground. She would simply smile and look toward the shocked crowd.

    "You see living a life full of hatred and resentment will not change the world for the better, no we forgive him and everyone else that hates and despises our existence., We will change the world so people never again feel this sort of hatred and animosity toward others, we will have a great and wonderful nation under Ryuko, a nation that is for the people."

    Yui would pull the knife out of her arm as her wound would begin to close shocking all that watched, was she some sort of god they had no clue but they felt kindness from her toward the stranger, not anger. A loud cheer would fill the air from the Jashin and those that could not believe how kind she was. She even went to the man and offered him to his feet motion for the guards to not beat on him, she would open her arms and hug the man before he would begin to cry, she was so kind even though he had tried to kill her yet she accepted him to who he was. She would wipe his tears and smile as she would wave the crowd. He was then carried off but she would make a note not to kill the man and release him later.

    He stared at the crystal ball, stoic and numb, as the events rolled across the sphere. Familiar faces flashed over its hemispheres, always looping back to Lady Ryuko who stood in gleaming, ornate armor.  Once again, the cameras were on the move, flashing across Mort, then to an assembly of Orthodox Jashinists--no doubt flocking around Mora. He knew Shimiko and the Twins were rarely far behind.

    "--Now I know that some of you are concerned that as an authority figure in the Church of Hakkin that I will make worship of my god mandatory but I can assure you that couldn’t be further from the truth. Tis very important to me that people have the freedom to choose for themselves what to believe in.”

    Fingers crawled over the teal blanket for the small IV button. He pulled it close, tapping it lightly as Ryuko's words swam from the sphere, and flooded the room. She spoke of change, of freedom, and the more of her words her drank in he allowed himself to sink into the morphine-drip; he wanted to pretend, even through the agony, grafts and bandages, that just for a moment everything had fallen into place. That this was all happening in another time and place, outside of reality. Perhaps he'd be there with the others-- celebrating with Mort and Niko.His head lolled to the side, resting on his shoulder as he sank into the pillows, smiling faintly through withered and scarred lips.

    "--We all need something to fill that void, To make us feel like we exist for a reason. For some people, that’s family. For others art. But some of us need a god to fill that void, to make our lives feel like they mattered. It’s ok if you don’t, Science is probably better at telling you what to believe. Religion is more about what you need to believe--"

    The morphine slipped through his veins, enveloping each and every frayed nerve and mangled cell. One by one it moved, nerve by nerve, softening their fury. Distantly the machines continued their steady beeps. Heavy eyelids closed, swallowing up the florescent light, and opened to new voices radiating from the sphere.

    There was jubilation in the air, a chorus of cheering and clapping.

    "I... can't believe we have become Chuunin," the voice gasped, and bloodshot eyes focused on the figures of the Twins, Yui and Yua. Slowly, he felt the morphine falter, its hold on his nerves loosen as he sat upright. "--we don't feel we deserve this nearly as much as Rini however with that said you don't refuse your higher-ups promotions. We promise we will help make this nation a great and prosperous nation, a nation in which the poor or underclass will feel safe and happy. We will help change the nation, no the world to become a place of happiness for all."

    Through the morphine stupor, his mind could only numbly comprehend as a man rushed the stage with a knife. In a movement nearly too swift for the cameras, the assailant was disarmed and tackled. Jubilations turned to screams and exclamations, the coronation twisted into an uproar, and all the while, the Twins regarded the moment with surreal cool.

    "Forgive....?" He echoed, watching the moment unfold as the Twins preached.

    "--You see living a life full of hatred and resentment will not change the world for the better, no we forgive him and everyone else that hates and despises our existence--"

    "Yua...Yui..." He rasped to himself, "The void does not forgive. Jashin does not forgive. And you two most of all, can never be forgiven."

    blah blah blah

    Rini was pretty bored. All the speaking was more or less just a pointless demonstration for the masses. This kind of stuff was all pomp and circumstance. Really, nobody needed to actually be anywhere near here. Everyone just wanted a nice little party, but she wasn't like them.

    Next is Rini Nakamura. For Reaching the finals and your display of unwavering determination against overwhelming odds I declare you Chunin! Do you have any words to say to our audience?

    Ryuko had beckoned Rini towards the stage, and Rini wheeled herself to the podium. All eyes were on her. Rini's throat felt like it was closing up, and she felt her face flush red. Pulling her hood over her head, she grabbed the flak jacket that was handed to her and rested it on her lap. "Kinda sucks when one of your main choice for promotion is a girl in a wheelchair. Not really any determination against overwhelming odds, just most of the competition wasn't that special."

    She then spun her chair and wheeled off stage to the back, leaving that as all she had said. There really wasn't any reason for her to be here anymore, but she couldn't leave until she was dismissed, so she just focused on her puppet, opening up some of the hatches on it and began to see if anything was out of place and needed to be restocked or replenished, touched up, fixed, or otherwise improved. Of course, there wasn't any change from the last time she'd done that, but she repeated her process a lot. Rini was never 100% certain that someone hadn't tried to tamper with her things, and any miscalculations could be bad.

    Nariko was amused by the response of the Rini girl. It was unprofessional for sure, but that girl's intellect was unmatched, and her skill was undeniable. It was rather clear to her that anyone below her in terms of skill was probably lumped into that "unremarkable" category. There was no real tact in the way she spoke, but it was clear that she wasn't very comfortable in front of people or being the center of attention.

    The Twins were up next, surprised that they were given a promotion, although it shouldn't have been that much of a surprise. They were the host of a bijuu, for one, and they weren't exactly weak. The fact that they were a viable host for Shukaku alone was a decent proposal for their candidacy.

    From her post by the podium, Nariko had a good view of the crowd, and her reaction skills were nothing short of legendary. Having been no stranger to assassination attempts, she was quite able to pick out someone in a crowd that was about to try something, and so as the man broke onto the stage, Nariko was one of the first ones to act. Of course, the ANBU around them would have been attempting to as well, but the former Raikage was a hands on type girl. He never stood a chance of making it to the twins and was halted almost immediately.

    In an instant, the air around Nariko lit up into a lightning shroud as she activated LRA. To most people, her movement wasn't even seen as she appeared in front of the man, her hand grabbing his wrist and taking his weapon as he attempted to climb. A second unseen movement as Nariko's second hand chopped into the side of his head, knocking the would be assassin unconscious. Then she would move back to her place by Ryuko's side, and deactivate the shroud around her. The ANBU could do the clean up and interrogation, but for now, interruptions like that could be avoided pretty easily.

    Name: Lightning Release Chakra Mode
    Rank: B

    Skill: Ninjutsu
    Classification: Kumogakure Village Exclusive
    Requirements: Lightning Release
    Parent Technique: N/A
    Hand Seals: N/A
    Description: The user wraps their body in a layer of lightning chakra which, instead of being used offensively, is used to electrically stimulate their nervous system. The technique speeds up neural synapses reaction time, and pushes physical prowess to the absolute limit allowing for tremendous raw speed. The technique has two different levels of activation each visibly depicted by the users hair which stands up when the technique is activated to the fullest. The first level grants a unique boost of ++ to Constitution, Strength, and a tier to Coordination and Speed. The second level grants a unique boost of a tier to Constitution, Strength and two tiers to Speed and Coordination. Raiton techniques that normally have a piercing effect such as Chirdori Sharp Spear are ineffective against both levels of this technique.
    Weaknesses: While using the first level the user cannot use any other element except for Raiton. This extends to any technique ninjutsu or otherwise that requires the use of an element other than Raiton. The user may still use non-elemental ninjutsu as well as Yin or Yang Release based techniques along with Genjutsu, Fuuninjutsu, Sensory, and Summoning. While using the second level the user is restricted to Raiton or non-elemental physical techniques (Tai, Ken, Buki) only. If the majority of the user's body is submerged in a body of water the electrical current will spread up to 40 meters but they will not receive the boosts. If the majority of the user's body is submerged in the earth the electrical current will spread 60 meters but they will still not receive the boosts.

    Tamwyn would watch and listen as the woman who had all so suddenly become his sensei was introduced to the stage. Ryuko's armour was immaculate, as would be expected of someone of her new rank of Raikage. Lady Ryuko Shizu Von Rose, he hadn't expected to become one of her students on that day behind the administration center. To be honest, if he hadn't accidentally walked around it to find a quiet place to train he doubted she would've even noticed him. Him, a simple genin, with great talent in lightning chakra mind you, but a simple genin all the same. Her speech of religion was certainly different from the norm, at least in regards to the spew that those cretins in the Jashinist church spewed. He quickly pushed himself away from such thoughts however. As he couldn't let himself become overcome with anger toward the institution that killed and sacrificed his parents to their sick and twisted little god. If he did people might think he was angry at Ryuko for her talk of religious freedom, which couldn't be further from the truth.

    No, he was quite pleased with her steps in that direction. Although he couldn't afford to show that much either, lest some overzealous idiot in the church of jashin decide to attempt to sacrifice him while he was in the back of the crowd. Boy wouldn't that be amusing? Regardless, Ryuko's speech would continue on to Chuunin promotions. Tamwyn's heart felt a yearning to be on that stage now. To be recognized by the entire village as having distinguished himself in a tournament to prove one's prowess. Alas, such things were rare, and he doubted when his time came to be promoted it would be so quick, and so public and flashy. To be honest, that in itself had its own drawbacks. As such a public promotion put the spotlight on those who had been. Life would become more difficult for them as the eyes of the village were upon them to watch their progress.

    The first to be promoted was absent, an odd decision, given that a promotion ceremony was to celebrate your achievements so to be absent from your own promotion ceremony was quite odd. It was like being absent from your own funeral, what was the point? The second was there however, and Ryuko would announce her. Should she come out, Tamwyn would blink in surprise. A wheelchair? She got to the finals of the Chuunin exams, in a fucking wheelchair? 'Girl must be a beast..' He would think to himself, cute too. But that was entirely beside the point.

    The final promotion was to a couple of Jashinist as far as Tamwyn knew, they hadn't exactly been subtle about their religious affiliations after the practice had been made legal and as such Tamwyn couldn't give less of a shit about this, Yui and Yua. She'd never met them personally and didn't want to. However then something absolutely shocking would occur. Someone would attempt to rush the newly promoted duo. But Lady Nariko would suddenly crackle with lightning chakra and disappear. He would see her standing there one moment, and then disappearing the next, reappearing where the man had begun his charge. Then she would disappear again and be back where she was, lightning gone. Tamwyn, a genin who wanted nothing more than to become the ultimate master of Raiton, was thunderstruck and he desperately wanted to learn what that was. Perhaps he could ask Ryuko-Sensei, or if the opportunity presented itself, Nariko herself.

    Should Yui still give her little speech of forgiveness and the drooling idiots in the crowd still taken by Tamwyn wouldn’t believe a word of it. No, she was a filthy Jashinist and any kindness from them was just them trying to make you feel at ease before sliding the knife between your ribs. Tamwyn wasn't stupid enough to follow the crowd, and had no intention of cheering for the girl as the crowd seemed to want to do. He would clap though, he couldn't appear too unkind toward the church of jashin and it's members lest he become a target of their ire. They were low and base enough to try to have him killed if they saw such behavior. Especially if they noticed it in a student of the Raikage herself. They would probably see a potential threat if he was left alive, giving Ryuko his thoughts on the sickening acts the Jashinists did in the name of their god. He couldn't allow that, he had kept himself emotionless thus far, to continue to do so and clap would make him appear as if he simply didn't show emotion much, which wasn't untrue. So he'd have a reputation for it, personal hatred of the religious order that had been a massive thorn in Kumogakure’s side for years now hidden? Check.

    Darkseid had expected a quite ceremony. A few surprises here and there. Ryuko was properly readied for this job when she stepped out. She went from being thrown at death's door, to becoming Raikage. Now she strode out on center stage. With an impressive armor set, she looked the part for sure. It was a shame he would serve the Thundercats for only a little while longer. But he would help protect their legacy. Ryuko gave a great speech. Though Seid was there for mostly security. Then he heard some surprising announcements.

    There was going to be a few promotions. Rini whom was exemplary in the Chuunin exams had made rank. The Twins whom had been trying effortlessly to make Chuunin now finally did. In his Chuunin exams, they had been interrupted. So they were able to do a test by Nariko's choosing. He went against a Tatsuda and the Twins. He was a step above them and came out on top. Now he was there to finally see them pass.

    Then all of a sudden during his praise of the new Chuunins. Someone tried to rush the stage. Moving impossibly slow, it would be trivial for them to interrupt the man. And thats exactly what Nariko did. To the naked eye she seemed to move as a blue. Lightning caked her body as she moved in front of the man and knocked him out. And brought the man back from the stage.

    Seid was still impressed with the former Raikages prowess. She was still one the deadliest fighters in Kumo. Seid would quickly make his way down. Another ANBU member appeared at the sametime. They both would grab the man and move him out of the way. Disappearing as fast as they came. Taking him away for interrogation. Seid had a place in mind.

    Post by Ryuko on Fri Jul 31, 2020 12:13 am

    The newly minted Raikage had to fight the urge to facepalm as Rinn made an unexpectedly smarmy comment. They hadn’t exactly rehearsed this for various reasons, partly to keep some things a suprise but even if they had there wasn't really stopping anyone from going off script.

    For someone as supposedly smart as Rini was supposed to be you’d think she’d be able to read the mood of the event a bit better. This wasn’t the time or place for self depreciation. Just because she was in a wheelchair didn’t make her a cripple. What was seen by many as a sign of weakness could if fact become one of her strongest strengths if she put it to use properly. If they were foolish enough to look down on her because of it then she could turn their arrogance into a weapon and turn the tables.

    Still what Rini had done was nothing compared to some idiot who got the bright idea to try and pull a knife which Nariko quickly put a stop to. She wasn’t sure how he’d managed to smuggle one inside to begin with but maybe security was slightly more lax than normal today. This was the first time they had allowed so many people into the royal palace at once leaving the guards less time to do thought checks at the gatehouse.

    Considering the number of elite ninja present not to mention the presence of two entire squads of royal guards whose job it was to blend into the background and prevent trouble you’d have to be either nearly braindead or have balls of solid adamantium to try and pull a stunt like that. He’d never stood a ghost of a chance of succeeding.

    Stepping back from the prodium Ryuko held her arms out allowing her lady in waiting Sophie to slide the new Raikage cloak onto her. It was white with golden yellow lightning bolts emblazoned along the bottom rim with the word Raikage emblazoned on the back in Kanji. It was more of a jacket without sleeves and worn over her armor making her strongly resemble a feudal warlord.

    However instead of her stepping back up to the podium Oda shuffled back over instead once more taking her place to make one last final announcement during his career as daimyo. He stood strong and dignified. One word from him off script here and he could sow the seeds of conflict once more but all the fight he had left in his old bones had long since left and he wasn’t about to throw away the last shred of pride he had to stick it to Ryuko now. Not when it would be equivalent to throwing the second chance she had given him away and put his family at risk.


    “Today is a great one as this is far more than the inauguration of a new Raikage but the birth of a new nation. For the last several years we have treated the Land of Frost, a territory we control as a separate sovereign land. Now we are taking it and the Land of Snow which had recently been gifted to us and merging them into one greater country. As of this moment this is no longer the land of lightning but the Kingdom of Thunder.”
    he declared to a thunderous applause.

    He could do this because there were no daimyos of those lands to oppose his decision. The lord of Frost had been taken out by Nariko. Conquering a nation by taking only one head was in the grand scheme of things about as clean as a coup could go. As for the Land of Snow it’s Daiymo had abdicated his throne when he turned over the territory.

    “However it shall not be I who will be ruling over you. For too long I stood idly by while a massive crime syndicate grew under my nose. My failure to bring them to heel sooner allowed far too many of you to suffer and for that you have my sincerest apologies. In order to avoid repeating my blunder I now yield the throne to Lady Ryuko, the woman responsible for correcting my mistake.” he said much to the shock of the crowd.

    Ryuko slipped off her village headband then stepped forward and knelt before Oda. Kneeling like this was a symbolic act of placing oneself closer to the earth. Royalty was supposed to be a step closer to heaven and above doing such things but she was doing this as a display of humbleness with the full intention of never having to kneel to anyone else in her life ever again. Taking out a golden tiara that had been prepared in advance Oda placed it on her head then stepped away allowing her to rise up.

    “All hail the queen!” He barked feeling relief that for the first time in decades the weight of a nation was no longer on his shoulders.

    All the Cameras were on Rini as she rolled up to the podium. Her speech if that's what you want to call it, was less than expected but nonetheless was said and then she would roll off the stage. Damien would smirk at what she had said, it was clear she didn't want to be here either. Still he would not let it interfere with his task, Ryuko would step up and make the surprise announcement of the twins advancement. A drone quickly finding them within the crowd to show their shock to the world, filming them as they took the stage and began their speech. Though what happened next was a blur to Damien the cameras would catch it all, the man charging the stage, the previous Raikage sudden charge of the man knocking him out. Damien would simply look in shock as one moment the former Raikage stood next to Ryuko and the next she was on top of the man in the middle of the chamber, the male was glad he had it all recorded so he could watch it later at a slower pace to see what had truly happened. As the Anbu took the man from the chamber, one of the twins would speak of forgiveness. Damien laughed at the thought, had someone attacked him like that he would see to it that they suffered beyond measure. Still with the twins now promoted Ryuko would step back from the podium and Sophie would place the Raikage Robes upon her, and then something else that Damien didn't expect to happen happened. The old man Oda would return to the podium, Damien half expected him to object to Ryuko being the Raikage with the way he rushed to the podium. Instead he made a bold statement, announcing the Kingdom of Thunder to the world. Hearing the man's words Damien almost couldn't believe his ears, yet the man wasn't done he would go on to tell about how he failed the land and wouldn't be leading this new kingdom but instead it would be Ryuko leading them. A wide smile would form on Damien's face, it would seem his connections within this village just got a lot more pull than she had before. She went from the Raikage's assistant to the Queen of the kingdom, of course this meant her rule would include Moonspire and he was now her subject. Still with their business relationship already in place, Damien hoped she would still respect and allow him his freedom as otherwise it could jeopardize his other business ventures.

    As Oda placed the tiara upon Ryuko's head one drone would watch it from above while the others panned the entirety of the chamber, they could always edit in the reactions and if anything else happened Damien could easily switch the feed, but for now the only thing on the screens from the live feed would be of Ryuko. Oda would step back and shout out all hail the queen, Damien would clap and Zhu Li would let out a cheer. Damien would look to her in shock at such an outburst from his usually quiet assistant, but would turn his attention back to the drones just as quickly. Wishing to ensure that nothing from this gathering was missed, he would talk about the unprofessionalism of that kind of behavior later.

    Rini's statement was rather off-putting. Shimiko frowned and shook her head as the newly minted Chuunin passively insulted both her village and her fellow competitors. Disgraceful! She assumed that Rini was bitter about being handicapped but that was no excuse for her rudeness. She'd need to have a word with the girl later.

    Shimiko watched with pride as her twins to the stage to accept their reward. The moment was almost perfect. Almost. From the corner of her eye, she saw a man shuffling forward. It was as if he wasn't even trying to hide himself. Shimiko's smile faded as the man rushed forwards. A dark rage consumed her spirit as she tracked the man's path towards her precious children. Judging from the way he moved and handled the knife, she could tell he was a civilian not a shinobi. It would be child's play to stop him before he reached them but part of her wanted him to get close. She didn't want his intentions to be excused or mistaken. Shimiko restrained herself from ripping him apart with her blood and allowed  him to scramble onto the stage and towards Yui and Yua. Before he could get to close though, her hand shot out and she unleashed five needles from her senbon shooter. The Senshichi Needles zipped towards him, guided by her freeform blood manipulation. The projectiles slammed into his spine at targeted intervals rendering him totally paralyzed. Nariko-sensei took it from there. She used Lightning Release Armour to knock him out. When he fell down, ANBU swooped him in to catch him. A black bag was placed on his head and he was carted away from the arena so quickly you'd think that he'd never been there at all.

    Seid walked down to escort the prisoner out of the arena and to the interrogation rooms. As he walked by, Shimiko made eye contact with the man and nodded. She'd join them shortly and when she did she'd make him experience a hell that not even Jashin could fathom. The only reason she had not tortured him on live television was because this was the Twins' moment and not his. She did not want to steal the spotlight from them and so she managed to control herself. Although it was obvious by her facial expression and posture that she was nearly overcome with rage.

    The woman knuckles were white and she was standing fairly still, like a predator waiting for an excuse to pounce. Shimiko began to soften as the twins preached forgiveness. Shimiko didn't agree but she suspected that this was all just an act. The Jashinists had a bad reputation for being blood-thirsty and she assumed that Yui and Yua were trying to mend it. Shimiko wasn't concerned with the opinions of heathen meatbags but if it was important to her darlings then she'd support them. She clapped at the end of their speech and gave them a genuine smile. She was glad that they were safe, happy, and above all else successful. She could worry about taking her vengeance later.

    Shimiko turned her attention to Oda who was now to crown Ryuko as the Queen of the country. None of this was a surprise to the Chinoike as she had been there when they twisted his arm into giving up power. He had made the wise choice in transferring power to the Vestal. Putting the unpleasantness of the assassination attempt behind her, Shimiko clapped and cheered for her friend. It was a good day for the Lightning Country. Notably, none of the Jashinists were clapping. Her speech had rubbed them the wrong way.

    The redhead's choice of words were...odd. Somehow it was an insult to both herself and others, yet by insulting herself she had put herself above the competition. While Mort himself didn't enjoy it, Id found it fascinating. But there was more to come in the form of the twins. As they spoke their mannerisms put off Id, like looking into a strange mirror of how they acted when messing with Mort. But the fun was just beginning as a man stared to move to the stage.

    They weren't sure whether to be shocked or relieved when the man who tried to go after the strange duo had stopped as something appeared for a brief moment and the man went down, then dissapeared like nothing had happened, with the ANBU cleaning up the issue in a matter of moments. It was times like these where he was glad that he was a ninja as it could let him see things not many could, but even her blinding fast speed was like two glimmers of light: enough to make out that something had moved, but since he wasn't trying to a threat it was almost like a teleportation, but he could tell it was human, that's for sure. Probably an ANBU.

    And yet things kept getting weirder as instead of the newly-dressed Kage going back up, someone Mort vaguely knew as the Lightning Daimyo. Mort and several other Kurama would slightly tense up at the mention of Land of Frost, and continued to show faces of concern when it was being merged with Lightning and Snow. While he himself didn't have much connection to Frost as he spent little time there, the clan was going through some unrest due to some disturbing information about lost scrolls possibly resurfacing, though those were just rumors right now. There was also the fact that while the Kurama didn't consider any place truly their own, Frost was the closest thing they had to one, and if those scrolls were to be real, it would be a very sour start to the Kingdom of Thunder and mess up the main clan's attempts at establishing themselves more in Kumo. In fact Hoki Kurama and his next-in-line had willingly missed coming to the coronation as the Clan leader felt the nature of the scrolls possibly threatening the Clan's agreement with Kumo was more important then the possible insult of missing this important event.

    Even with all the concerns building up, those worries were lost when the unexpected happened as Ryuko also became the Land of Lightning's new Daimyo. It would take them a few seconds as the information set in, but both those of the Kurama Clan and those they took in would show their support and clap for Ryuko. Mort though, despite her being his teacher and mentor, couldn't bring himself to clap as the implications of Church, state, and military were now combined. Sure Ryuko was smart and knew not to mix them, but what about the next-in-line? In a rare moment of compassion (or possibly just being swept up in the passion of their clanmates), Id took over and did the clapping instead.

    The twins moved quickly over to the man they had forgiven for making a move to assassinate them, it was clear it was the churches doing, the power struggle had begun and they were targets for elimination due to their influence over the church. They would say their speech before Ryuko took the stage as the pair listened to her words they could see the Jashinists begin to look worried and anger crossed their faces. The head of another religion was now in power and her words she spoke felt like she would be making a move on them. The twins would wait for the speeches to end before smiling and suddenly yelling as loud as she could to get the Jashinist attention.

    "YOU ALL SHOULD BE GRATEFUL, Ryuko is a wonderful woman and she would never harm or punish anyone that did not deserve it. She is a trusted person and someone you can rely on, any move you dare make against Ryuko will get our wrath. We forgive attacks on us but we will not forgive attacks on Ryuko or her religion. I will take this time to call out the one who forced this man to attack us, we all know who it was Mora. We have gathered plenty of evidence of you conspiring to not only kill us but possibly others. Lady Ryuko here are the documents and testimonies of her orders from within the church, you also were a target."

    The twins would hand over a stash of papers they had inside their dress to Ryuko the empress of the kingdom of lightning. The twins would simply stare at more and give just a slight smirk if she had not figured it out they had completely outsmarted her and their ploy of being loyal to her over the years had greatly paid off. The twins would step to the back of the stage to let Ryuko read the documents herself and indeed there was no doubt it was Mora it even had the church seal to prove it was her signature on the documents. The orders were for the execution of the twins, Ryuko and Nariko, as well as several higher-ups in Ryuko's church, it also had plans for when they wanted to seize power and take the country for themselves. There was one final document that also had them wanting to banish Shimiko from the land of lightning because they felt she would not cooperate with their plans.
