Mr. Tulfo: So… Wendy Valdez is in control of the entire Big Brother House, right? Dinaig pa niya si “Kuya”. And that evil energy surrounding the house… is no doubt coming from her. A frontal infantry-based attack may be the best way to stop her from producing more evil energy.
Jeremy: Ganito rin ang iniisip ko, Sir Bitag.
Matthew Luke: So let’s prepare five squads for the assault on the house. Only the best and finest warriors among us will be included… at Jeremy, kasama ka roon, siyempre.
Hyacinth: Right!

Strategy Battle 4: Invasion of the Corrupted Big Brother House

The Nueva Liga Filipina (with Jeremy) decides to head to the PBB house. The army is met with lots of robotic minions… and, of course, Wendy and Bruce.

Wendy: Ahahaha. Hindi ko inaasahang babalik ka rito, Jeremy Hidano. Akala ko… pinatay ka na parang isang pipistuging insekto. At meron ka pang mga kasamang pawang mga insekto rin.
Bruce: Insekto… insekto… insekto…
Jeremy: Hindi kami insekto! Ako ay isang taong ipinaglalaban ang hustisya! Ang pangarap kong paligayahin ang nakararami gamit ang aking puhunan — ang boses ko!
Matthew Luke: OK… Jeremy, it’s your time to shine! Your time to dash!
Jeremy: Sige!

Jeremy then steps forward, and readies himself.

Jeremy: QCPD, Emergency!

Flicking the switch of his BraceThrottle, the background changes to a shining white tunnel that accelerates by itself. The morpher then releases a hologram of the battle suit he will wear. He runs along the tunnel, does a 900-degree backflip and lands flawlessly, and then his body absorbs the hologram suit, materializing it.

Jeremy: Face on!

A helmet then materializes, completely covering his head. The transformation is complete.

Jeremy: Ako ang wawasak sa kadiliman ng kasamaan! Ako ang magbibigay-liwanag sa mga nangangailangan! Mirai no Chikara! OmegaBreak!

Wendy smirks, and then commands her robotic horde…

Wendy: Sige, lipulin silang lahat!
Bruce: Lipulin… lipulin… lipulin…

Victory Condition: Defeat Wendy.

Loss Condition: Jeremy is defeated.

Special Note: You can freely assign battle and support units to the five required friendly squads, but Jeremy will always be assigned to Squad A.

For completion’s sake, here are the squad designations. As an addendum to the rules on strategic battles first set forth in episode 5, battle units can also be assigned as support units, but support units cannot be assigned as battle units.

1. Squad A
B: Matthew Luke, Hyacinth, Jeremy, James, Toni, Sam
S: Tintin, Joelle, Mami, Meis

2. Squad B
B: Mizuki, Asa, Ayu, Misuzu, Arcueid, Saber
S: Mike, Ben, Ogie, Michael V.

3. Squad C
B: Ya Chang, Kim, Gerald, Hero, Joseph, Sandara
S: Hattori, Lito, Pinacolada Neko, Kazuma

4. Squad D
B: Milfeulle, Mint, Ranpha, Forte, Vanilla, Nene
S: Nigel, Serika, Setsumi, Keanna

5. Squad E
B: Multi, Serio, Hard Gay, Yumi, Sachiko, Aoi
S: Katie, Sanzo, Viki, Yeng

STRATEGY BATTLE START!

The outcome of this strategy battle? Squads A, B, and C successfully breach the formation of Ironhead Krybot Infantry 1, 2, 3, 4, and 9; while Squads D and E are successful in preventing Ironhead Krybot Infantry 7 & 8 and 5 & 6, respectively, from ambushing the rest of the squads.

Some time later… While the remaining squads finish off the minions, Squad A manages to defeat Wendy’s unit with minimal damage.

STRATEGY BATTLE ENDS IN A MAJOR VICTORY!

With all of the robotic minions defeated (and Bruce falling unconscious after being defeated)… the two mortal rivals stare at each other with fiery glances.

Wendy: Grr! Ang Bruce ko! Magbabayad ka!
Jeremy: Hindi na makakatulong yung lalaking kinokontol mo gamit ang iyong masamang salamangka. Ngayon, patas na ang laban. Isa laban sa isa.
Wendy: Sige lang… pero insekto ka pa rin sa paningin ko.

Wendy transforms into her more horrendrous form, and the duel begins.

[Duel: Jeremy Hidano vs. Wendy Valdez]

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN — SHOWTIME!

Attack:
Low-life cretin!
Batugan!
Bulate!
Tuliro!
Ampalaya!

Defend:
Walang kuwenta.
Aliwin mo naman ako.
Wala ang salitang “talo” sa bokabularyo ko.
Nanginginig ang tumbong mo ngayon, no?
Nakakainis ang lakas mo.

Deathblow:
Langit, langit, impiyerno!
Ako ang tunay na emperatris!
Walang hanggan ang aking rehimen!
Better luck next time… I mean, NEVER!
Pagbubusalin kita… magpakailanman.

When Wendy’s HP reaches the critical level…

FINISH HER!

Jeremy powers his BraceThrottle for his finishing move.

Jeremy: Iniaalay ko ang lahat sa kamaong ito!

He then delivers a power punch that deals a critical hit to Wendy.

Jeremy Hidano wins — HEROIC BRUTALITY

[End of duel]

The dust is settled, and both duelists demorph. Furthermore, the evil energy surrounding the Bug Brother House has been dissipated.

Wendy: Grrr… Nanalo ka nga… pero hindi pa tapos ang laban… insekto… ka pa rin…
Jeremy: Kahit ako’y insekto… nanaig ako sa isang higanteng tulad mo!

Suddenly, a shadowy figure comes out of the Big Brother House.

Sir Gabby: Kamusta na kayo, mga dati kong kasama sa Nueva Liga Filipina?
Matthew Luke and Hyacinth: Sir Gabby?
Sir Gabby: Hindi pa rin kayo tapos sa walang-kuwentang krusada ninyo, gamit ang mga maruruming dayuhan. Siyanga pala, meron akong narinig na balita na meron pa kayong katunggaling grupo na puro mga die-hard Japanophiles ang mga miyembro nito! Hindi ko pakikialaman ito, dahil alam ko… at ng buong madlang pipol… na pareho kayong magagapi! Taging kami lamang na mga tunay na Pilipino ang mananaig sa huli!
Hyacinth: Don’t pull out that “true Filipino” crap!
Matthew Luke: Naku naman! Now I realize that Filipinos can even discriminate against other Filipinos! Sana… you should realize what you’ve done to us!
Sir Gabby: I won’t delve in such trivial things like forgiveness. Because we are pure, sinless, and clean!

Sir Gabby then feels Wendy gradually rising from her unconsciousness.

Wendy: Makining kayo… mga insekto… sa June 30… doon sa Araneta Coliseum… magtatatak ang aking tadhana… ang pagiging Ultimate Housemate! Subukin ninyong… pigilan ako… at matitikman ninyo… ang aking poot sa inyong mga insekto!
Sir Gabby: The “Big Night at the Big Dome”… I hope this will be the true end of the useless Nueva Liga Filipina! AHAHAHAHA!!!

The two then disappear in a puff of smoke.

Matthew Luke: Mission complete. Bumalik na tayo.

Jeremy may have gotten his righteous vengeance on Wendy, but his struggle is not yet over. His crowning moment will come June 30… the finale of Pinoy Big Brother Season 2.

Thanks go to TheSpriter at The Spriters Resource (http://spriters-resource.com) for the Dissidia 012 Final Fantasy HUD rip.
No thanks go to the pro-Noynoy posters at the PinoyExchange forums for their immature posts against ousted Supreme Court Chief Justice Renato Corona.

This chapter is dedicated to the people who fight for the way of truth and justice… who find themselves discontent at the events of May 29, 2012.

***

The next day. June 16, 2007. Morning.

Matthew Luke glances at the hangar of Balay Kapatiran… specifically, the big void in it. The Strike Gundam disappeared with Kira’s betrayal. Athrun, who is managing the hangar, glances at the void with sad eyes.

Matthew Luke: Kira… hindi ako makapaniwalang gagawin mo ito…
Hyacinth: (cuts in) Matt… kailangan mong ihanda ang buong puso’t kaluluwa mo… Ang duwelong ito… ang magpapasya kung ano ang magiging kapalaran ng samahan natin… at ng buong Pilipinas.

A doorbell then rings. The childhood friends approach the front door, and open it.

Kira came to Balay Kapatiran, alone.

Kira: Sa wakas, magkakasubukan tayo… Matthew Luke Laonglaan. Kung sinong organisasyon ang mananaig at sasalba sa Pilipinas.
Matthew Luke: (pause) Pero bago natin simulan ang duwelo natin, kailangan muna nating siguraduhin na magiging patas ito… Kira Yamato.

Arrangements are made before the duel — notably the assembly of all Stars of Destiny (save for those who left the organization the previous episode), plus Kaede, Hyacinth’s parents, the Raijin-Oh crew, the Mountain Lily Council, Katie’s friends, and select members of the press — at the stronghold’s front lot.

The onlookers wish Matt good luck, and then look at Kira with concerned, sad eyes.

Hyacinth: At ang huling hakbang para sa patas na laban… dapat parehong sandata ang gamitin ninyong dalawa.

Hyacinth then hands over a pair of simple combat knives. One for each combatant.

The two combatants then ready their minds and bodies… in a duel that will determine the fate of the Nueva Liga Filipina and the N3 Collective. And possibly the fate of the entire Philippines.

Kira: Ipapakita ko sa inyo at sa sambayanang Pilipino… ang aking kamay na bakal ng galit!

[Duel: Matthew Luke Laonglaan vs. Kira Yamato]

THE WHEEL OF FATE IS TURNING — REBEL 1 — ACTION!

Attack:
You… paid hack!
Ang mga taong tulad mo ang lalong sumisira sa patetiko nating bansa!
Huwag kang magpa-uto sa pipitsugin mong paniniwala.
Hindi iyan nakukuha sa daldal lang.
Ang lakas mong mag-ilusyon, bugok!

Defend:
Istupido? Nagtatanga-tangahan?
Wala kang delikadesa!
Suntok, iyak, takbo!
Kahit saang tupada, basta tumakbo ang manok… TALO!!!
Kasuhan mo ako, sige!

Deathblow:
Ako na ang bida ng istoryang ito!
Ikaw ang dapat mapatalsik!
Tingnan lang natin kung sinong tatawa sa huli.
Tang… ina… this!
You are already damaged goods.

[End of duel]

~~~THE PATH BRANCHES: The outcome of the entire story will differ depending on the results of the duel.~~~

1. When Matthew Luke loses the duel
2. When Matthew Luke wins the duel

If Matthew Luke loses the duel…

His body weakened from sustaining too much damage, Matt struggles to rise up and continue the duel despite his clear defeat, only to finally tumble and fall.

Matt: Kh… Hindi… pa… tapos… ang laban…
Kira: Akala mo lang iyon. Ngayon… heto na ang simula ng tunay na pagbabago. Palpak ka talaga… at wala kang napatunayan bilang isang tagapagligtas daw ng Pilipinas.

Kira then brings out his handgun. Hyacinth attempts to disarm him, but he easily dodges her attack and sweeps her out. The onlookers then fear for their lives.

Kira: Joubutsu suru (rest in peace)… Matthew Luke Laonglaan.

A shot is fired.

Silence dominates hereafter.

And what is left of Matthew Luke Laonglaan is a lifeless, bloody mess.

He was shot at the heart.

Kira then announces to everyone who witnessed the duel.

Kira: AHAHAHAHAHA!!! Paano na ngayon, Nueva Liga Filipina? Patay na ang itinuturing ninyong lider! Pinatay ko siya sa sarili kong mga kamay! AHAHAHAHA!!! Ang pagbabagong minimithi nating lahat ay nagsisimula na! Ang N3 Collective na ang organisasyong magsasalba sa Pilipinas! NIPPON BANZAI! AHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Kira then leaves Balay Kapatiran, still laughing madly. Any attempts by the police to arrest him are thwarted due to the N3’s minions secretly brainwashing them.

Once the mad laugh has dissipated, Hyacinth’s cries of utter anguish dominate… as the devastated co-leader of the Nueva Liga Filipina strongly clings to her now-dead childhood friend.

Hyacinth: (cries) Matt… bakit… bakit ka nagpatalo sa walang-hiyang iyon…? Binigyan mo kaming lahat ng lakas… upang labanan ang tunay na salot sa ating bansa… pero ngayon… (cries) fate’s been too… cruel… to you…

Hyacinth’s streams of tears continue, and the onlookers also cry of their own accord, paying their respects to their now-deceased leader.

Just then… rain suddenly falls from the sky.

The weather is the same one week later. The day of Matt’s burial.

He will be buried at a certain cemetery, at the same spot where his parents and his little sister also lay.

The remaining members of the Nueva Liga Filipina, as well as the others who witnessed the duel the week before, all take part in the burial.

As the casket that contains the leader’s corpse slowly descends to the ground, Hyacinth only shouts one thing as she tries to touch her best friend one last time.

“MMMMMMMMAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT!!!!!!!!!!!!”

Fortunately, the Ren’ai Rangers constrained Hyacinth, thus preventing her from falling into the burial hole.

Mizuki: Hyacinth… alam nating lahat ang sukdulang damdamin mo… pero kailangan mong mabuhay!
Saber: Life must go on, as they say. Heto nga ako… matagal na akong naghihintay para kay Shirou… and I stay strong!

The casket has finally reached the ground, and Hyacinth comes back to her senses.

As she witnesses the burial mound once more, she announces something.

Hyacinth: Mga kasama ko sa Nueva Liga Filipina… ikinalulungkot ko… na gawin ito. Ang samahang ito… ay wala na… simula ngayon.

The members express their disbelief at Hyacinth’s announcement.

Hyacinth: Ang samahang ito… ay bunga ng pagpupursige namin ni Matt. Kaya kung wala ang isang importanteng kawing… wasak na ang buong kadena. Simple lang naman ang gusto naming dalawa… ang makita ang pag-usbong ng Pilipinas mula sa mga samu’t saring problemang kinasasadlakan nito. Pero ang tadhana… ito’y sadyang napakalupit. Hindi kaila sa akin na gagamitin ng iilan ang kapangyarihan nila upang sirain ang sinumang hadlang sa kanilang mga pansariling ambisyon. Si Matt… siya ang biktima ng mga ambisyong iyon. Nanaig ang maruming pamumulitika at sobrang ideolohiya. Ang mga iyon… ang gumagambala sa ating bansa. Nasira ang samahang sasalba sana sa ating bansa dahil sa mga iyon. Kaya ngayon… mga dati kong mga kasama… gawin ninyo ang gusto ninyo… at baka sakali ay… magkakabuo uli ang samahan natin… Taos-puso po akong nagpapasalamat sa inyong lahat… dahil sa abot ng inyong makakaya… tinulungan ninyo kami ni Matt sa aming adhikain… kahit na nabigo ito… At Matt… pasensya ka na… saan ka man naroroon… paumanhin… at salamat. Ipinapaubaya ko na sa ating Poong Maykapal at sa taong bayan na higit na makapangyarihan sa ating demokrasya ang kinabukasang gusto namin ni Matt… at ang kasarinlan ng ating bansa. Maraming salamat.

The speech has ended, and the burial has formally ended. The members of the now-dissolved Nueva Liga Filipina, as well as their allies, all go their separate ways after paying their last respects to their former leader and consoling Hyacinth… and only God knows when will they reunite.

The next day… Balay Kapatiran now exudes a droll, lifeless atmosphere… as the Stars of Destiny, as well as their allies, have now scattered to different parts of the Philippines, all doing their individual businesses.

Hyacinth glances at the things left behind by her childhood friend at their shared room, and sheds a single tear.

She and her parents now occupy the once-vast headqurters.

The N3 Collective, meanwhile, is very happy that its rival organization is no more. Now that its biggest roadblock is gone… the two leaders begin their plans for their version of “change”, in the form of their “zeitgeist”…

***

If Matthew Luke wins the duel…

Matt, while pointing his knife at his defeated opponent, sternly lectures Kira on the evils of breaking a wonderful friendship due to misguided principles.

Matthew Luke: Makinig kang mabuti, Kira Yamato! Ano ba… ang mawawala sa iyo ngayong natalo kita sa dwelong ito? Simple… ang baluktot mong paniniwala! Isipin mo ito… Dahil ba ikaw ay naging bilanggo ng iyong sariling paniniwala, tatratuhin mo bang parang tapunang laruan ang pagkakaibigan natin?
Kira: (struggling to rise) Ah, basta! Meron akong sariling prinsipyo, at dahil na rin sa N3 Collective, nasagap ko na rin ang katotohanan!
Matthew Luke: Yung “katotohanang” isinusubo sa iyo ng walang-hiyang grupong iyon ay hindi tunay na katotohanan, gunggong!
Kira: Grr! Pati na rin sa debate, pilit mo rin akong ginagapi! Hmph! Magsama kayong mga ugok!

Though injured, Kira angrily leaves Balay Kapatiran. The loser tries his best to elude himself from public view as he makes his way back to the N3 Collective’s headquarters.

As Matt puts away his knife, he remarks…

Matthew Luke: Kira… masyadong maaga pa para ideklara ko ang pagkapanalo ko sa dwelong ito… Even though you’ve fallen to the dark side, you’re still a Star of Destiny…

Athrun and Shinn then approach Matt.

Athrun: Yun pala, Matt. Naalala ko tuloy… noong mga nakaraang araw, meron akong nakitang mga subersibong dokumento sa kwarto niya. Baka ang mga iyon ang dahilan ng pagtiwalag niya.
Shinn: Sigurado tayo… na hinding-hindi tayo yuyuko sa mga hunghang na iyon! Maililigtas natin si Kira at ang ibang mga tumiwalag sa samahan natin!
Matthew Luke: Oo. Pero… kailangan muna natin ng isang mabisang solusyon.
Hyacinth: Tama! Before, we let our strategists do their thing. Pero ngayon… closer cooperation of the rest of our members is needed.
Mr. Tulfo: Of course. We need to strengthen our intelligence network if we want to stand a chance against the N3 Collective.

But then… Jeremy feels something stange.

Jeremy: Mga kasama… parang… meron akong nararamdamang… evil energy… mula sa Bahay ni Kuya!
Mr. Tulfo: Well then… let’s all head to the command center!

The command center’s central computer picks up an abnormally high amount of evil energy coming from the Pinoy Big Brother house.

Jeremy: Wendy… ano na ang susunod na gagawin mo…! Pero hindi bale, I WILL dispense justice on your sorry butt!
