    One Year after the Black Knight Insurgency:
    Geass Directorate Base, Somewhere in the Gobi Desert, 2018 a.t.b


    It was never supposed to be like this. The immortal thought as he ran through the winding corridors of what should be a completely secure base. Someone...no, that was incorrect. Something had managed to get inside. Ordinarily, this would be a minor security concern. The guardsmen would be more than enough to deal with any unwanted guests, and if necessary, they had the children to deploy.

    But then, as if God were laughing at him, his damn nephew had shown up with his 'Black Knights', as if calling such filth would make them so. He had made to pilot the Siegfried, his masterpiece, but the Hunter had found him first. The first bullet went straight through his left knee, and the second had lodged itself into his spine. Needless to say, he found himself in immense...discomfort. It was not the first time he had been shot, far from it in fact. But that did little to change the fact that a small chunk of metal travelling at an average speed of two and a half thousand feet every second still caused a great deal of pain to him.
    So now here he was, physically dragging himself towards the Thought Elevator. It was ever so tedious, he would have to 'die' again to fix this nonsense.

    "The old and oft repeated warning that 'Absolute power corrupts absolutely' has a single, yet vital flaw." A voice declared, though the being that was once Victor zi Britannia could not see its owner. "Said flaw being, of course, that when given to a certain type of person, absolute power feels absolutely fucking glorious."

    "When one has such power." The voice continued. "The idea of limitation, whether by morals or laws or decency, becomes anathema. And even the bonds of blood and kin become little more than unimportant words in documentation." He heard footsteps approaching him from behind, and rolled himself onto his back. Hissing in pain, his gaze narrowed on the one walking towards him as recognition set in. One of the children from half a decade ago. "Is that not correct?"

    "You...dare?" V.V. hissed. "After I extended greatness to you!"

    "You were foolish to share that power with me, traitor." The cool gaze of the Knight of Twelve, Monica Krushevsky filled his view, and the one that was once called Victor zi Britannia scowled. The blonde woman tossed aside her rifle, likely pilfered from the Directorate's own stores, and rested a hand on the hilt of her blade.

    The diminutive elder man sneered. "How did you get passed The Orphans?"

    "Do you not recall?" Monica gestured to her left eye. "Absolute Immunity. A very useful gift against your little pets. As were bullets. I gave them the gift of mercy, had I let them live they would have become monsters, just like me."

    V.V. let out a mad cackle. "You justify the murder of children without a shred of regret. You are entirely deserving of that moniker of yours."

    The Knight of Twelve narrowed her gaze, and slowly drew her blade free from its sheath. She stepped closer towards the man, her face betraying little emotion.

    "Victor zi Britannia, for your crimes of High Treason, the murder of her Majesty Empress Marianne vi Britannia and your repugnant and extensive Human Experimentation..I, Monica Krushevsky, Knight of Twelve, do here by sentence you to death." Monica pressed her blade to V.V's neck. "I'd offer you the chance for last words, but quite frankly, I do not care to hear them."

    "STAND DOWN, KNIGHT OF TWELVE!" A thunderous voice filled the chamber. V.V's lips curled into a smirk. His little brother was always so reliable.

    Without a moment's hesitation and lowering her sword, the Knight of Twelve knelt at her sovereign's approach. She kept her gaze on the ground, and voice even. "Majesty."

    Charles zi Britannia, Emperor of the Holy Britannian Empire, Supreme Head of the New Anglican Church, Primus inter pares of the Round Table and a whole host of other titles he had a secretary to keep track of, strode into view. His eyes were not on his brother, but on the youthful woman obediently knelt before him.

    "..Dame Krushevsky." He began, his gaze hard and unyielding. "It appears you have at last returned to where your journey began. I would know how….and why."

    "...Your son kindly led me to this location." Monica explained plainly. "I took the opportunity he provided to...settle certain scores. The fact I could legitimately claim to be delivering justice for Empress Marianne was...convenient."

    "Was it now?" The Emperor raised an eyebrow, and Monica was not sure whether it was curiosity, amusement, or something else entirely.

    "..You know what that thing did to me, Your Majesty." She spoke quietly. "So you know why I have done this. I offer no apologies."

    "Indeed?...Very well then. Dismissed, Knight of Twelve. I shall deal with my brother personally."

    "Of course, Your Imperial Majesty." She rose to her feet, resisting the urge to shoot a glare...or another bullet, at V.V. "Do you wish for me to render Princess Cornelia aid?"

    "...I do not." The Emperor dismissed her with a vague wave of his hand. "Now, go. Have the Flagship be prepared should I require it."

    "By your will, My Emperor." Monica saluted, made her departure. "All hail Britannia."

    "...Charles." V.V. scowled as he watched the Knight of the Round grow further and further away. "Are you honestly going to let her go? She must be dealt with! She knows too much!"

    The Emperor sighed, and strode towards his brother, a hand outstretched. "..Rulers that kill those that are loyal to them do not remain Rulers for long, Victor. You were the one that kept reminding me of that."
    V.V's eyes widened as realisation as to what his brother intended to do set in.

    .Why? He thought. Why betray me like this, Little Brother?


    Monica Krushevsky smiled to herself as she departed the Geass Order's main base. Whilst the Black Knight's had come here ostensibly to kill the bastard that ran the Directorate, wiping out the other Geass users was almost certainly a major secondary objective.
    It was immaterial, of course. Her Emperor had a mission of his own. One important enough to come in person. One that it was so paramount that it remained secret, a Knight of the Round was to make no effort to assist one of the few children that her Emperor actually gave a damn about in order to ensure its secrecy. Ragnarök. An unusual name for a project, but as the Emperor's Hand, it was not her duty to question, only to see it to completion.

    Well, That was certainly something. The Voice commented idly. Her constant companion for nearly a decade had at first terrified her almost as much as the demented dwarf that had detained her had. But after the hell she had had to endure, the missions, the tortures, the experiments...The Voice and she had come to an understanding. He, and The Voice was most definitely male, would advise her and supply her with knowledge. In return, she would not reveal His existence. It was a fair enough deal, in her opinion. So then, Monica. What're you going to do now that that reject troll doll is dealt with? Charlie boy has given his marching orders.

    "If what you have said will happen does...we are going to put down a rebellion." Monica smirked. "The Empire's Hand will choke the life from that arrogant little shit. If not, I shall enjoy a glass of fine wine as I toast in the End of the World."

    Works for me!

    I must admit, this story is the product of both wanting to do a Code Geass SI, and to expand on the role of a minor character.
    It always struck me as a little odd that Monica Krushevsky, who canonically was Head of the Imperial Guard/The Emperor's personal security wasn't part of the Geass Directorate or affiliated with them in any way. The person responsible for knowing where the Emperor is at all times..shouldn’t be in the position where “I don’t know where he is” is a valid answer, since in Britannia, an answer like that is liable to get you shot.


    So here we are. A Pseudo Self Insert where the SI only exists as a voice in Monica's head.

    Let's see how this goes, hm?

    I did think this over, and came to the conclusion that it would be a little OP, given what Besk!Monica’s geass is/will be, due to the implications of ‘Absolute Immunity


    As for the next chapter and the story going forward, I’ll be winding the clock back to show how she came into possession of said geass and the beginning of her journey to become the Knight of Twelve.
