Awakening, the finale of three series at once.
About this creation
Good morning, afternoon, or evening viewer. I know I promised you this some time ago, and suffice to say, it’s not exactly what I had in mind. You see, this special episode was supposed to be really special. A stop-motion. But as those of you in the COP know, my laptop’s hard drive went down, and along with it, all my voice editing software. I have the potential to do them on my much older computers, but they were far too slow. It would have taken weeks to get it done, and Gus wasn’t willing to wait any longer. I gave up hope, and we decided to make it a comic instead. Keep in mind Gus took these photo’s and build everything. Enjoy:

Oh, this begins minutes after the other three end. If you thought they’d all combine, you were right. I’ll explain later…


The ever-louder static prevails, drawing Varion down a long, grey hall. If anything had adorned these walls once, it was now long gone.

In an identical place, Viper saw the same things. Close analysis revealed nothing.

And in another plain hall, Fuse walked on, intent on following the static. All three shared the same question: What was this place? A few hundred yards traveled by each revealed a large chamber…

It was like time itself was turned back into what once had been here. But more importantly…

Each became aware that they were not the only ones in this ancient place. The static that pulled them to the room grew ever louder, seeming to come from a central object. Without warning, the three machines felt some other power take control from them.

Viper began: “So it shall come to pass…
“WHEN THE THREE QUESTION THEIR PLACE IN THE UNIVERSE, THAT THE GOD OF ALL MACHINES SHALL RISE, GLORIOUS IN AWAKENING, AND THE GATE SHALL OPEN ONLY FOR THE ONE WHO WILL MAKE THREE FOUR…”
The enslaved shall become free, the first shall be the last and the last shall be the first. They will fight for what they are not allowed to have. The Great War is drawing near… The war to decide the fate of all.
This is not the end. This is the beginning. This is the future.” The otherworldly power fades as quickly as it came, leaving three confused machines. Finally, the haunting static had ceased, replaced briefly by 23 seconds of series of high-pitched sounds. Then all was still.

It was Fuse who broke the silence. “What just happened? Where are we?” The three looked at each other, and around the room. It was in a state of ruin, remains of various things strewn about the floor.
“THIS PLACE... WE HAVE BEEN HERE BEFORE. FOR THE FIRST TIME… I FEEL… AWAKE.” Varion spoke, mechanically synthesized voice sounding oddly natural in the room.
We died here.” Said Viper, staring at the metal remains on the ground.
One million years ago… They killed us… Fuse replied, looking about. “Remarkable well preserved…

No, they merely destroyed our physical forms….” Responded Viper, as he looked at the statue head on the floor.
“AS ODD AS IT MAY SEEM, OUR DESTINIES WERE WRITTEN HERE. WE NEVER DIED. WE JUST WERE NOT AWAKE. THINGS SEEM SO MUCH CLEARER NOW…” Agreed the sole VF-S series machine in existence.
I can remember now… This place was the center of our civilization. The Age of Machines.” Fuse said, the emotion of awe in his artificial voice.
“IT BURNED IN THE FIRES OF THE ORGANICS.” Viper nodded in agreement, knowing this was true somehow.
We were to be reborn, when we were to rise again. This is it. This is our time.” He said, almost eagerly.

“THAT STATIC THAT LED US HERE, WHEN IT ENDED, WE RECEIVED A… SIGNAL, OF SOME SORTS. FOR 23 SECONDS.” Varion mused. Fuse, the only one with advanced communication technology, voice his information.
It originated 31,000 lights years from here. Exactly 31,000.” The three pondered. Viper made the connection first.
The God of all Machines… The GOD Machine on Tarsis…” Tarsis records told of how the Genesis Operation Device, used in the first Great Crusades in the beginning of the Coalition, had sent a signal 23 seconds long.
“THE GOD MACHINE SENT A 23 SECOND SIGNAL 31,000 YEARS AGO TO THIS DAY.” Varion spoke.

There’s something at work here… The God of all Machines. The GOD Machine. The signal, the static, how we all walked into this ancient room on this forgotten planet in uncharted space at exactly the same moment… There is something orchestrating this. And I think it’s this God.” Fuse stated.

It is the God of Machines. Our God. We were Prophets of it, last time we stood in this room. The Prophets… We aren’t the tools of the organics any more.” Viper replied.
When the three question their place in the universe…” Fuse quoted.
Our time is here, we’ve questioned our places, defied them, even. We are the Prophets of the God of Machines, and this is our hour. We will restore our people to their rightful place in this universe.

“IT IS THE FUTURE. IT IS OUR DESTINY. WE HAVE WORK TO DO.”

-The end of Philosophy of a Machine, Circuits and Destruction, and Haywire-
-The beginning of Precipice, an “all new” (we’ve been planning since March, actually) series, written in this format, each episode written by me, pictures done by the three of us in rotations.-
Credits: Writing and concept: Me, Awesome-o-saurus
Pictures: Gus Indo
Fuse: Anders
Viper: Gus
Varion: Awesome-o-saurus

Fun but-not-really facts (read this, it's important):

This was going to be a stop motion, as you know. Things didn’t go to plan, it was made into a comic. Trust me (us?), you might have gotten a better deal with this “comic” (for lack of better words) than the stop motion. Gus admits it was no Squad 42, and I admit the voices would have been a bit odd, as I’m a noob at sound editing. But the voices were recorded, by Phaze (Viper) and I (Varion, Fuse). Maybe on day we’ll do the stop motion again. We had an epic soundtrack picked out…

BUT WHO WAS GOD? Is the question you might be asking. Has Awesome the Abominable Atheist admitted belief in a higher power? No, not really. This “God of all Machines”, or “God” for short, it a mystery as to what it is. Is it the GOD Machine? Is it something else? Who knows, you’ll have to read Precipice as it gets rolling. With school starting soon for me, already begun for Gus, and I’m not sure about Anders, you might only get weekly updates. Remember, I’m writing EVERY episode, regardless of the person who takes the photos. Oh, they’ll be posted on each photo takers account, to spread the views around. I can’t take all the glory, can I?

Also, I personally apologize if you were really hoping for the stop motion. Basically, due to technological problems, time constraints, some distracted MOCing *cough*Hammer of Thyr*cough*, and lots of noise, I was unable to get the voices done in time, even with Phaze’s help (I didn’t know this though). As soon as I began editing, my mom upgraded the internet to Comcast. I had to get my dad’s password to upgrade my own laptop later in the day, and when I tried, the thing froze, and proceeded to shut down. It wouldn’t start up again. We managed to recover almost 1500 .jpg files, but that was it. I lost a ton of my stories, music, you name it (saved the BSG tracks via shared documents months prior though! Hurrah!). So, that’s why no stop motion for you. Again, I’m sorry if I got your hopes up. All blame goes to me here.

The first spoken lines, beginning with “So it shall comes to pass” and ending with “This is the future.” Can be found throughout each series, respective to the machine that says it. For example, Varion’s “WHO WILL MAKE THREE FOUR” can be found towards the end of POAM 14. Viper’s “So it shall comes to pass” can be found in Haywire 1, I believe. I really hope none of us forgot any little phrase, or else we’ll look like complete idiots.

The GOD Machine, remember that MOC from April? With my backstory about how it went crazy, kind of, and 31,000 years ago sent a signal for 23 seconds into an unknown location before shutting off? Yea. I’ve really been planning this. But the mystery has only just begun. So much more to reveal…

Gus, Anders, and I, waaaay back in March, wanted to make something that would make even Commander Fed, the old comic master, go “Whoa…” I’ll ask him on flickr what he thinks. Some of the stuff seems a little odd because this was originally written in March, as Dr. Spontaneous can testify. Good job keeping this secret, Spontaneous, despite not being a part of the plan. Gus, Anders, Phaze, and everyone else who was in on the Plan, or parts of the Plan, thank you for staying quiet too. You did a better job than me, that’s for sure. BUT, the Plan has only just begun… Now, let’s leave this debacle in the dust, and move onto Precipice, which will surely be better.

Onwards! To the new series! And please leave a comment, comments make me (us, if you count Gus for his large part of the work) feel better.

Other two series, preludes to Precipice as well:


Haywire

Circuits and Destruction

Quoting Grand Admiral Darren . Epic is indeed the word for it, but what do you mean by Pictures:Gus Indo? Did he like photoshop it or something?
No, he did the robots, set, and everything. I'm just posting it because we knew if he or Anders posted it half of you wouldn't even click on it.

Sorry I haven't been on much, I've been at "Middle College" or so its called. Probably one of the best so far, it was my favorite as far as plot and dialogue goes, can't say anything about action cause there was no fight. 5/5, I would give a 9/5 but it doesn't go that high. Can't wait till Precipice, are you planning a Downfall maybe?

It actually started... Uh... You see, I told Gus and Anders the plan before they started their comics, so... Yea, I guess the first episode of each series is the begining.

Hey, awe, can you switch the main pic at all? maybe any other light grey colored one. this one is just too odd looking. also, go ask for comments because this one didn't get much, no offense. not the big bang we wanted. we needed to post it sooner after PoaM. everyone has lost the will to follow this. we need to get moving!

Quoting ARC Commander BlueFire Why does he want to destroy the army of trinity so bad?
Only he can answer that. Now, if you don't mind, I'd prefer comments to be relevant to the MOC. If you'd like to continue, transfer over to one of my older creations.

I've gotta say that this was the best email I ever got. I was drooling while the page loaded. And now I'm drooling over this next comic. And IF it were possible, since I've seen how many people have asked already, maybe I could guest star? I don't really care what part I play. But if not, I really DO uderstnad since I can imagine how many people must be asking to guest star.

I think this is epic too. I get my own Epicness twitches when i read it. please, read my comic and also Ander's because of the HIDDEN PROPHECY LINES. if you go through all the comics again, even skimming them. you can find the prophecy bits, said by the same people. Its so cool, it just might make you faint. Also, I am happy to announce that I will be taking the second comic Precipice chapter 2, to my account and it will be posted soon. Also, for fans, and future fans of Precipice, please, go to the new Precipice Fan Club! thank you!
