Desperate Measures

The Magic SOB forum is for posts of story sequences that are frequently vignette-based. Put those here while actual battle reports can go in Reports From the Field.
You must talk like James T. Kirk in this forum at all times. Leonard Nimoy is fine too.

Desperate Measures

Postby Colette » Wed Apr 04, 2012 8:06 pm

In war, truth is the first casualty.
-Aeschylus

Ultimately, diplomacy failed. Even if it was a mistake, its correction meant nothing to the RIN or Bavaria. In its effort to keep the brik-verse whole, Trattoria ripped its own world to shreds.

The Avalonians had no choice. Though they pledged allegiance to the Allied Nations, they could not stop and watch the savage beating of its neighbors from the sidelines. They decided they had to take action, effective action, no matter its cost.

Location: Bureaucracy Tower, Trattoria, Capital of Trattorian Empire

Image

Special Avalonian agent Wilhem Henrik was the man to do this action. He tremored inside but put on the persona of a confident diplomat.

“Ambassador Wilhem Henrik is here for a scheduled conference with the President of Trattoria regarding the Third Alliance.” he told the guard.

“Excellent, let me scan that package of yours and simply walk through the x-ray machine. Would you like me to call the president to tell her you’re here?”

“No, no that’ll be fine.”

Wilhem hoped the specially-engineered box would withstand a simple x-ray scan. They would need it.

Image

“Nothing suspicious was found. Would you like a security escort to the president’s conference room?”

Wilhem shook his head furiously.

“Absolutely no need.”

---

Image

Avalonian Soldier 1 (sunglasses): “Alright, we’re here. Let’s open the package.”

Wilhem: “Sure, just make sure no one is watching.”

Image

Wilhem: “What is the meaning of this pile of junk?”

Soldier 1: “Just wait for it...”

Image

Soldier 1: “Ah, that’s better. This camera-bot will be our bullet-sponge so we don’t get shot the moment we walk through the door.”

Image

*whirrrrrrrrrr*

*klick*

A large computerized voice announces the Avalonians’ unexpected arrival.

Image

President Angela: “Excellent, these developments will be very useful in the Immortal...”

General: “What the hell is going on?”

Avalonians: “Surprise!”

Image

An Avalonian soldier dispatches a Secret Service’s head.

Image

The Secret Service Captain, though, is a much more hardy guy, and in reply fires his shotgun in the Avalonian traitor’s face.

Image

The captain doesn’t kill him quickly enough though, and receives a bullet to the neck before turning around.

Image

Wilhem: “Turn on the camera-bot. We will send this to Trattorian News Now and maybe get some...results.

Soldier 1: “Aye”

*Camera Recording*

Greetings, citizens of Trattoria. As you can see here, we have your president as a hostage, at our mercy. Any attempt made to kill us or rescue her will end in the death of your dear leader. Our only condition is that the Trattorian Navy be ordered to stand down, and that Trattoria cease all hostilities and support of hostilities against the Third Alliance. Avalon apologizes, but we cannot let our other friends suffer without consequence. That is all.

The ambassador's name should have been a dead give away, but that is what you get for instigating war.

In response to this hostage crisis, the Zupponn Mining Co. has been hired by the Allied Nations for disruption purposes and to generally wreck havoc against the enemy. Currently they have infiltrated the Avalonian home planet...

Image
Nearby a large Avalonian city, a small group of ZMC mercenaries lies in wait to ambush the incoming Avalonian patrol.

Image
Precisely, and without warning, the ZMC mercs open fire, killing 2 Avalonians on the spot.

Image
The remaining Avalonians fight back, though, and they each take down a ZMC merc.

Image
But it wasn't enough, as the remaining soldiers are gunned down.

Scenes like this one have become more and more common, as the ZMC works to disrupt all enemy supply lines using guerrilla tactics. How long the ZMC troops will be able to stay in the system is yet to be determined, however. The Avalonians are quickly working to secure all supply lines so that the ZMC won't be able to keep the pressure on them for too much longer.

Trattoria was said to be the land of prosperity. People were able to get what they wanted, the median income was in the six figures, and the younger generation attended the finest schools in the brikverse.

And so everyone was happy. Well, again, most of them.

Image
Intelligence Director Siri sulked down the halls after another session of mocking by her male colleagues. She was convinced the government of Trattoria was just messed up, especially after reading all that chatter and big-name politics discussion about gender-equality elsewhere in the brikverse. In particular, all the booty bothered and nonsense going on in a debate about the new FIENDS. But it had gotten into her head, and ever since she followed the FIENDS thread she became more and more obsessed on "empowering" herself in front of her colleagues.

That was when she saw the news report about President Angela.

Image
(Credit to Pasukaru76)

Reporter: Hello, random civilian. You said you were working inside the Bureaucracy Tower when the Avalonians first took her hostage?
Civilian: Why, yes. The police have told me...

Siri thought, "That's it"

Image
She grabbed her iPad and began what she knew would be a long journey. To her, though, it would be a worthwhile one. Because for once, she knew she would be respected and feared by all. She would be able to make change.

Siri thought about what she was about to do. Treachery, for sure, but it wouldn’t matter after she overthrew the rest of the government. Her long-treasured goal of the presidency would be hers.

Just wondering are you consulting with semaj nagirac when you make these things?
Also very cool job with the acces codes.
Only 2 things are infinite the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not so sure about the former- Albert Einstien.

@NapalmKing: The first post was definitely Semaj's idea, I simply executed it in bricks. As for Siri and everything else, well, that's my own independent plot twist.

@RM: Haha like that'll ever happen.

@Tzan: If anything could possibly be behind the name, it was probably the new Apple program Siri. The character now is very different from what I originally came up with, but the name stuck.
