Code Geass R1...as told through headlines

There was definitely news coverage of the events of Code Geass, and they were probably much more serious than this, but let’s just say a Britannian newspaper somehow managed to completely avoid the censor. What kind of headlines might be churned up?

1. TERRORISTS TO BE WEEDED OUT FROM SHINJUKU

Prince Clovis has decreed the best way to eliminate terrorism is to commit mass genocide of their race. Another excellent idea from his Highness!

2. CEASEFIRE AT SHINJUKU

Following the revelation that these terrorists are actually competent, Prince Clovis has changed his mind and ordered a ceasefire. Elevens are hardly worthy of our Prince’s mercy.

3. PRINCE CLOVIS IS DEAD

The nation is in mourning for the loss of our beloved Prince Clovis. Margrave Jeremiah has stated: “it was probably an Eleven”. 

4. CLOVIS’S ASSASSIN FOUND

Suzaku Kururugi, an Eleven. No-one is surprised.

5. WAIT NO ZERO DID IT

He may also be an Eleven. It’s hard to tell since we all speak in Japanese for some reason.

6. PRINCESSES CORNELIA AND EUPHEMIA ASSUME THE POSITIONS OF VICEROY AND SUB-VICEROY OF AREA 11

Princess Cornelia returns from kicking terrorist ass in Area 18 to kick terrorist ass here, in our very own Area 11! We look forward to the ass-kicking to come! Oh, and Princess Euphemia too, we guess.

7. SAITAMA = SHINKUKU 2.0?

We beg Princess Cornelia to not change her mind and call a ceasefire! We’re running out of Royals.

8. THE RETURN OF ZERO

We’ve got him this time!

9. ZERO ESCAPES

Dammit.

10. JLF HOLD HOTEL HOSTAGE

Let this be a reminder to all you sympathisers out there - terrorists are very evil!

11. BLACK KNIGHTS SAVE HOTEL

…But they’re still evil.

12. BLACK KNIGHTS CRACK DOWN ON DRUG TRADE

Reports indicate that Zero is very easily distracted.

13. CORNELIA CORNERS JLF AT NARITA

So long as nobody intervenes, victory should be certain!

14. HOLY SWORDS SHOW UP AT NARITA

So the tide is wavering, but victory is still within our reach!

15. ZERO SHOWS UP AT NARITA

The Daily Imperialist regrets to inform our readers that the Britannian Army may be screwed.

16. BLACK KNIGHTS FALL BACK

We of course were never in doubt of Britannian victory!

17. BATTLE AT PORT YOKOSUKA

The JLF are fighting for one final push, but our brave soldiers are boarding the enemy ship as this is written!

18. ZERO BLOWS UP EVERYONE

Just…everyone.

19. ARMED CRIMINAL SHOT MULTIPLE TIMES BY POLICE

The criminal, named “Mao”, is now undergoing treatment at the local hospital. His recovery seems very, very unlikely.

20. MAO RECOVERS SOMEHOW

Reports suggest that the police were so impressed they let him free.

21. MAO MURDERED(?)

“Generally a gunshot wound to the head would guarantee death,” doctors say, “But you can never tell with that guy.”

22. BLACK KNIGHTS ATTEMPT PRISON BREAK

Kyoshiro Tohdoh, leader of the Four Holy Swords, has been sprung out of jail. However, a mysterious white knightmare is now opposing them!

23. SUZAKU KURURUGI DECLARED PRINCESS EUPHEMIA’S KNIGHT

Suzaku Kururugi, an HONORARY Britannian - that is, an Eleven in disguise - has been knighted. Hopefully Princess Euphemia will feel better tomorrow and sack him immediately.

24. BLACK KNIGHTS RUIN PRINCESS EUPHEMIA’S ISLAND GETAWAY

“What a bunch of party poopers” says Earl Asplund.

25. SCHNEIZEL BLOWS UP EVERYONE

With much more style than Zero, obviously.

26. WAIT, EVERYONE IS ALIVE

Kururugi yet to be disciplined for clear insubordination. Sources suggest this is because Princess Euphemia might have “a bit of a thing for him”.

27. EXILED JAPANESE GOVERNMENT STAGE INVASION

Britannia is currently fighting back with a single Knightmare. Clearly the threat is not to be taken seriously.

28. ZERO AND KURURUGI TEAM UP AGAINST SAWASAKI

Everybody confused as to what Zero is actually trying to do here.

29. JAPANESE INVASION FORCE DEFEATED BY TWO KNIGHTMARES

Sawasaki has been reported to be very embarrassed.

30. PRINCESS EUPHEMIA DECLARES SPECIALLY ADMINISTRATED ZONE OF JAPAN

“That’s a terrible idea”, says everyone. We however remain unbiased.

31. SPECIAL ZONE OFFICIAL OPENING

We’re not saying that this is going to go horribly wrong, but it might be implied.

32. IT WENT HORRIBLY WRONG

We may not be the most pro-Eleven newspaper, but…wow, Euphemia.

33. ZERO DECLARES FORMATION OF UNITED STATES OF JAPAN

“I can’t think why, but it just sounds oddly familiar”, one passer-by was noted to have said.

34. ZERO INITIATES “BLACK REBELLION”

The entire country is in upheaval. This may be our last issue as our editors return to the Homeland.

35. ZERO MISSING FROM THE BATTLEFIELD

Looks like publication can continue!

Goldilocks Wasn't a (Happy) Runner

I could be wrong, but if I had to guess, I’d say Goldilocks would not have been a happy runner. Too hot. Too cold. Too wet. Too windy. Too tired. Too long. Too short. Too hilly.A few weekends ago I laced up for an 18-mile run. Two weeks before I had just run the Austin Marathon — pacing my husband for the first time. I didn’t have a…
