    Default FTA: Curse of the Devil | Part 1

    So I'll be uploading Crinale's side of the 2 year gap from 2210-2212 until Jonny's done with his side of the same period. These will be posted whenever I'm finished with a part, so it won't be every week. It may be a few days, maybe a week and a bit, I don't know. Also, some parts may not be as long as standard FTA parts. (I try to keep FTA within 100 lines a part when typing it out in Notepad++, this part hits 48.)

    But in any case, enjoy the first part.

    FTA: Curse of the Devil - Crinale 2210-12

    "Fantastic," said Chris Scarbrough, under the disguise of Crinale leader Viktor Antonov, after giving his "Crinale International" speech, "Part 3 of phase 2 of my plan is complete."

    "Just one question," an employee only known as CO-09* asked, "How exactly could you afford all this?" She was talking about the building they were in, the true location of the new Crinale International headquarters which was not just renamed on a whim. They truly were "International", as the location...

    Was actually a space station, located high above the Earth's surface.

    "Ah, that is my little secret. Prove to me I can trust you well enough, and I shall tell you."

    "Prove? Trust?! Are you serious?! I've been with Crinale since the beginning, surely you should have seen all the stuff we got up to!"

    "Which was, for all intents and purposes, legal."

    "Yeah, right. You seem to forget the Tigron incident. That was not legal in the slightest. We had Interpol hot on our trail, I'm surprised we got away in the first place."

    "My point exactly. What you did, while not purely right, was completely legal. Alexandra Kotova just created a façade, an image, a gimmick. This was just like any other racing team, not the 'league destroyer' she claimed it was. But under my control, we will bend the rules until they snap. The league is already under our control, this is what I meant by Crinale having already won."

    He stopped for a moment, then continued with: "Fine. I shall tell you. You are, after all, one of the original 13. We didn't bother using Crinale's wealth, it wouldn't have made a dent in the costs. We used... let's just say we were funded from legally ambiguous sources."

    "So basically it's like the F9000, we're funded by illegal organisations. So? Why did you have to keep that a secret? it's not like we'd run off to the authorities, that'd be stupid."

    "True... well, at least I know I can rely on you COs, well... the ones that remained**, of course. the rest of you... I'm not too sure about."

    "You are not the only one. Most of us COs think that way too. The only exception was our thoughts of CO-07. In our opinion, he was an idiot. Glad Gelorum got rid of him befo-" CO-09 started, before he was cut off by Viktor.

    "Please. Do not speak her name again. If need be, call her CO-01."

    "Sure thing... sorry."

    "It's fine." He said, then saw the time displayed in the HUD of his helmet. "Damn, you're dismissed, I have important objectives to complete. Go."

    CO-09 nodded, then swiftly walked out the door.



    *CO is Crinale Original, which consist of the original 13 Angelus employees. They are given code numbers from CO-01 to CO-13. With the only exception being the Director of the team, the COs are the highest ranked employees of Crinale, having the highest clearance level of the team.
    **11 of the 13 COs remain in Crinale. The two that aren't there are CO-01 (Alexandra Kotova, fired) and CO-07 (Tyler Pċlsson, killed). Some COs, like Alex and Tyler, choose to be referred to by their names, where others, such as CO-09, prefer to be referred to by their CO number.

    Default FTA: Curse of the Devil | Part 2

    Hey Jonny, what's up? You haven't posted here in a while, is it because it's so close to Christmas?

    Anyway, here's Part 2 of COTD, enjoy!

    FTA: Curse of the Devil - Crinale 2210-12

    >log02: 22100503

    "What the hell is it that you want to speak to me about, that is so damn urgent!?" Viktor was rather mad at the urgency and insistence of the one of the newer employees of Crinale.

    "Well, you see... I... don't think I'm cut out for this. I wanna quit." He said nervously.

    Viktor could do nothing but laugh. A loud, malicious laugh, with a slight hint of anger filled the room, which seemed to go on forever, then stopped, abruptly. "Nobody quits Crinale. No exceptions."

    "I don't care! I want out! NOW!" He was practically yelling.

    Viktor chuckled "Out? Oh, I'll give you 'Out'. Do you want out right now, or...?"

    "Finally! You finally saw reason. Yes, I would like out now, please."

    The edges of Viktor's mouth twitched, then turned upwards to form a rather evil, demented looking smile. Not that anyone could see it, because, as usual, Viktor's face was concealed by his trademark helmet. Suddenly, he moved his feet in an odd fashion.

    >>GRAV-BOOTS ACTIVATED.

    He then activated other odd features of his suit, using the UI in his helmet...

    >>BREATHING APPARATUS ACTIVATED.
    >>AIRLOCK 32.5/01 ACTIVATED.
    >>PLASMA SHIELD AREA 32.5/01 DEACTIVATED.


    Wait...

    "Nobody quits Crinale. No exceptions. You may now GET OUT! До свидания*!"

    SMASH!

    The unprotected glass could withstand no more, and shattered outward, pulling the air of the room out of the space station, including the unsuspecting employee. Due to his "Grav-boots", Viktor was not pulled out. As soon as the employee flew out of the space station, Viktor re-enabled the plasma shield and activated an emergency shutter that closed over where the shattered window was, before normalizing the air pressure, which automatically deactivated the airlock.

    "You ask to quit Crinale, you ask to quit your life! Human lives mean nothing to me!" He yelled, storming out of the room.


    *До свидания is Russian, romanized as "Do svidaniya", and translates into English as "Goodbye" or "Bye now".

    Default Part 42: French Roulette

    Sorry, I actually wrote a part yesterday, but "the token ran out" (I was forced to watch "The Silence of the Lambs", so I let the laptop turned on, with the browser open, later continued writing. Then Firefox was like "So you wank think you could take a break, yeah f'ck you!", so here we go

    __________________________________________________ __________________________________
    Nico sat next to Madisons's corpse and embraced her. It can't be true, was it his fault? He felt guilty.

    As she freaked out, Madison's personal heard it and went into her office, just after she left her body.
    "Take him down!" shout one of them, Nico didn't cared that he got folded handcuffs, he just stared at Madison, single tears ran down his face while he got dragged away.

    A forensic entered the room and examined the corpse, first of all, he expressed the obvious. "It seems like President Larough didn't died from a violent act."
    "Was she poisoned?" Madison's personal assistent couldn't accept anything, but murder.
    The forensic made a test with Madison's blood.
    "Negative." he said.
    "But how did he killed her?"
    "Maybe we should ask Monsier Bovier." proposed the forensic.


    Nico sat with his back to the door as three men, Madison's assistent and two EAS agents, entered the room.
    "Hello Monsier Bovier, may you turn around." Madison's assistent said in a sharp tone.
    Nico turned around.
    "Monsier Bovier, you could help all of us if you tell us what happened in president Larough's office."
    Nico wasn't so stupid that he would say something idiotic, he played their game, although he already knew that the name 'Bovier' gave him a no-return ticket into prison.

    "I came to Madison- President Larough- to stop her, well, stop her bad self.
    We were talking about past things, it seemed that her good side already woke up, but the evil Madison took over the lead again, so she freaked out.
    I told her to fight against her bad self, then she went unconcious. It seemed like she was fighting her inner conflict."

    "And what relation you had to President Larough previously?"
    "It was complicated, literally." Nico could read that the assistent's mind was blown. "What do you mean with literally?"
    "You know, like you think that you broke up with your girlfriend, but you actually didn't, or she thinks something completely different." Nico didn't noticed that he started to smile, as he found out, he knew why...
    "So you had a relationship with President Larough? What status did it had at that time."
    "For a minuted I thought we were together" Nico started to laugh while the other men were looking strict, a habit that even Jonny Bovier had. "Westphalian humor, eh?"
    "Monsier Bovier, please be strict!" the assistent was angry. "So you want to tell us that...you were...President Larough's boyfriend?"
    "For one minute, but the bad Madison broke up with me."


    The men argued about what they should do with Nico.
    "The President is dead so special right's for friend's and family of her don't longer count, right?" asked one of the agents. "Actually he didn't broke any law, even his residence was accepted by President Larough." he added.
    "May we should take him as a lever to blackmail Jana Bovier, he is her brother." said the other agant.
    "Just lock him away as a war prisoneer, the Germans pay much money for them." decided the assistent.

    Default Part 43: Body

    Damn my titles are so creative XD

    ________________
    1st May 2210

    Nico needed to break out, again. He thought it wasn't a big thing since he already broke out of an EAS-prison, but they learned. But Nico learned aswell.

    "Excuse me, officer, the washbasin in my cell seems defect." that wasn't even a lie.
    The officer looked annoyed but agreed to move Nico into another cell.
    Three agents, not officer, escorted Nico to another cell, one on both sides and one infront.

    He made a step back to free himself from the grip of both agents, while all three pulled out their guns Nico used the chains from the handcuffs to tie up one of the agents at his neck. While he tried to free himself, Nico grabbed his gun and hold it at his sleve.
    He came until the main entrance, but the agent ruined everything as he shout "Don't care about me!".
    Instantly six agents infron of him shot, Nico knew they won't waste munition for a prisoneer so he let himself fall on the floor, now he could aim for the legs of all six agents. they fell like trees.
    He quickly collected another gun and finished the agents, before they could.

    Outside Nico stole a policecraft and went back to Paris, were he collected Madison's corpse and flew back to Berlin.

    Later...

    "Mrs Bovier, you have a guest" said Jana's secretary "it's your brother Nico."
    "Let him in" she answeared and putted up an angry face.

    "Hello sister." Nico sounded exited, as he was full of adrenaline. "You don't know what happened."
    "What?" Jana sounded annoyed as she saw Nico as a traitor.
    "I was in a french prison, they wanted to blackmail you, with me as a lever. Then I broke out, it was so amazing!" he jumped to signalise his success.
    Then Nico remembered what happened and became sad.
    "What about your little romance with our National enemy?"

    Nico told Jana how he may changed Madison, but also how her live ended.

    Noone could describe how Jana's facial expression was when she heard that her enemy, may no longer from a personal point of view, died, in a selfdestructive way. May she was happy, but felt sympathic for Nico, as he lost his love. Or she was excited by the experience he had, that may prove the thesis of Jonny, that Body and Soul are two divided things.

    2nd May 2210

    "So two people lived in one body?" asked Jonny.
    "Somehow, but they represented one person and were both active at the same time. probably 'the bad Madison' was surpressing the good one." explained Nico.
    Madison's dead body laid on a table.
    "'Jennter Enterprises enters neuro science' or something like that. That's good, if I finished that, I can die."
    "Don't say things like that. By the way, if body and soul are dvided, isn't it possible to restore the soul?" Nico asked.
    "Maybe, but I think that she is to long 'not alive'. Wait, all I told you is bullshit, we need to open her." he said coldly.
    "Ehhh, why?"
    "May, you know, everything you learn is saved in your brain. Now I want to know if she has two brains."
    "You can't be serios!" unlike Jonny, Nico didn't fell amused.
    "Just kidding, but did you noticed that she doesn't decays, normally after a weak ded bodys start to...smell."
    "Indeed." Nico agreed.
    "Maybe she is just inactive, although she neither breaths, nor her heart beats." Jonny explained. "You know, I travelled to Tibet multiple times, there were people who could turn down their physical functions as if they are dead. Do you know Hambo Lama Daschi-Dorsho Iltigelow?"
    "Who?"
    "A russian monk, living since 1852." Jonny looked into a surprised face "Actually, he 'avoided' his death. I can't explain, but I think he still lives."
    "So what do you think we should do?" Nico asked.
    "Usually you could operate on someones brain and he or she won't even notice it, so I think we should search a competent person. Or we wait."
    "Wait for what?"
    "That she wakes up." Jonny lied, in fact he waited for her death.
    "I don't think she would ever wake up by herself...just what I think!" Nico protested, he wanted to see progress.
    Jonny sighed "Here is the number of Brian Ellisston, he gave me these." Jonny pointed at his head, meaning the chips that steered his cybernetic body parts.
    As he went out of the room he wispered "Why do I even help that brat, he should look for a woman who doesn't wants my head on a stick. That is seriously no hard quest. SERIOUSLY!" He shouted the last word as he was really serious.

    Default Part 44: Rebirth

    In a war there is neither a good nor a bad side, only your own side.
    To clear it up:
    European Federation vs German Empire vs Russian Empire
    and
    United States of America (favours the Federation) vs Canada (favours the Empire, not the British this time ^^)

    World War V started mid-February as the German states declared indepentence from the centralised Federation. Currently the Federation suffers a Regency, multiple secession wars and the German and Russian armys. Meanwhile German occupies the Western parts of the Federation, while it's east get's overrun by Russia.

    3rd May 2210

    As Jonny entered the provisional Jennter building in Berlin he regretted that he was literally a part time worker of his own succeeder.
    He went down to the laboratory and find Nico together with Brian.
    "Hello?" he said.
    "Ah hello." replied Nico.
    "I see you called Brian who obviously has no freetime." noted Jonny.
    "You know I never have freetime, as I had to put you together every month." Brian joked.
    "Rather every decade." Jonny was to tired for jokes.
    "So you see how good my work is." Brian replied.
    "Nico, what's your plan?" Jonny asked Nico
    "We want to connect her brain with a computer." Brian answeared for him.
    "Sounds dangerous for you relict, but nowadays this kind of things are underway." added Nico.
    "'These kind of things' were done on me around 50 years ago, kid." Jonny replied annoyed.

    As Madison got connected to a computer all of them experianced something that was indeed new for them, travelling through someones mind normally required an explicit permission.

    They expected lines of zeros and ones, but what happened in Madison's head was shown in bright shining grafics.

    "I think this is what happened when I told Madison to fight." said Nico, breaking the silence first.
    "Am I allowed to ask if we have Madison Larough laying on this table?" said Brian.
    Nico nod.
    "Incredible." Brian looked fascinated at Nico and then exploded "HOW THE F'CK DO YOU GET TO THE BODY, THE BODY, OF MADISON LAROUGH?"
    "I had contact to her." Nico explained silently.
    "Ha, contact." laughed Jonny.
    "WHY SHOULD I HELP HER? SHE OPRESSES MY FELLOWS!"
    "If you help her, she may thank you. As I told you, she is shitzophrene. Also we pay you a pile of money."
    "You, Nico, you pay him." noted Jonny.
    "Well, Brian, that woman tried to kill me, but I'm interested in this case, what's up with her."
    Finally Brian agreed to continue working on this case.

    Meanwhile
    Numerous EAS-agents stand in a room, around a table. A body was laying on it, surrounded by machinery.
    "Are you ready?" asked one of them, another one nod.
    "Three, two, one." he counted and gave the signal to the previous agent.
    The agent pressed a button and the body slowly stood up.
    "Welcome back, Mr Assange."

    Oh great, the same thing has happened to this idiot. (Assange)

    I know that there is no good or bad side in a war, that's why I put "bad guys" in quotation marks.

    Also, I'm assuming it started in February of 2210?

    Actually Assange was shot and now "rebuilt" (things will clear up later).
    The war started 2210, right.
    Usually the "bad guys" in a war are the attacker, while the good guys are the defender.

    Just a quick question: For the second season soundtrack, would you guys be okay with at least one metal song? The song will apear within the context of the story, but if you guys don't like metal, then I won't put it in the story or the soundtrack.

    EDIT/PS: Has anyone actually downloaded and listened to the season 1 soundtrack?
