About this creation
This episode is written from the perspectives of Grant Armstrong and captain Phantom.

LOCATION: Weller base, Aurelian Academy wing, Zarus
TIME: 10:31 AM, Jan 12, 2098

-General Convo has come to the Academy for the yearly inspection, this being the first ever seeing as the Weller base academy has only been running for a year. I'm worried what he'll think of my "squadron", which consist of myself, Norea, Nick Gasher and Ashli Marcoe.
I mean, we're all good at what we do (Especially Norea, she's great at everything!), We just lack that certain...Er...Je ne sui quoi.
-

General Convo: "Alright, Recruits, listen up! After reviewing your field data and test scores, I can truthfully say you all did half-way decent."
Grant: "Yes! We did half-way decent!" I excitedly whispered to Norea.
Gen. Convo: "Now, go get to your daily assignments." He said before turning his attention to Captain Phantom. "Captain, I need to speak with you privately."
Capt. Phantom: "Yes, sir." She said before turning to give us "The Look" which means: GO GET TO WORK, ROOKIES! I wonder what they had to talk about...



-Something's wrong. I could feel it in Convo's words as he spoke. As we entered my office he removed his hat, which in my experience is also not a good sign... Oh my goodness, this is about "That Thing." isn't it?!? Probably not.-

Convo: "Captain, I wanted to tell this to you in private as not to cause a mass panic.."
Ok, so it's obviously not about "The Thing", so that's a relief...
Convo: "I received an anonymous tip that the GI knows about Weller Base and that they are planning an attack."
Phantom: "What? HOW?!"
Convo: "Apparently, an Imperial convoy stumbled upon our location and reported it back to their officials."
Phantom: "What do we do, general?"
Convo: "What we've always done... We fight back.



-The halls of Weller base are normally very hectic and loud, with a bunch of Aurelii running around. But today things are.... Unusually quiet..-

Norea: "What did you guys get on your Aurelian doctrine tests?"
Nick: "I got like, a 67 or something..
Ashli: "Hopefully an A, since I haven't gotten my grades back yet."
Norea: "Well, I got a Ninety-one... What about you, Grant?"
Grant: "I, uh.. got a...100." I said as I sipped my caffeinated protein beverage.
Ashli & Nick: "WAIT. What?!?" I don't know why they were so surprised, I mean, do they even know me? I'm 100% Aurelian born and bred!
Norea: "Great job, Grant! I knew you could do it!" I love it when she's proud of me.

-Just then, the ground began to shake, accompanied by loud noises coming from all directions.-



-A large shockwave sent us all tumbling to the ground.-

Nick: Agh! What was that!?!
Ashli: I don't know, but it doesn't sound good!!



-A droid rushed in, its emergency alarms blaring.-

Droid: "WARNING! WARNING! CODE BLUE! WE ARE UNDER ATTACK! I REPEAT, THE IMPERIUM IS HERE!"
Norea: Oh no..



-This is NOT good! Outside I see several GI assault ships, but one stands out. The Oblivion, Eric's ship. As much as I want to hurt him for how he hurt me, I don't want to kill him. But I may have to.-

Convo: "I didn't expect them to be here this quickly."
Phantom: "We need to rally up as many troops as possible."
Convo: "I already sent word to Major Traviss."



Phantom: "Sir. Eric is here. I don't know if--"
Convo: "Do not let your personal emotions get in the way of your duties, Captain."
Phantom: "Yes, sir."

-I know what I have to do. God give me strength.-



-This is Bad... This is really bad. I helped Norea to her feet and made sure the other two were okay. Man, this is, well...this is. I'm rambling, aren't I? There are Aurelii running to and fro through the halls of Weller base, rushing to their posts.-

Grant: "Is everyone okay?"
Norea: "I think so.."
Aurelian soldier: "Everyone to your posts! Prepare for infiltration!"
General Convo: "Man your battle stations!"



-We rushed over to the General and Phantom.-

Norea: "Sir! What's going on!?!
Gen. Convo: "The GI found us. We're under attack."
Phantom: "Listen, Rookies. This is code blue. I'm going to need you to evacuate the students and head to the rendezvous point. If anyone tries to follow you head to Fuyoria, our allies will take care of them there.
Grant & Norea: "Yes, Captain."
Phantom: "Now GO!"

- A blast rung through the halls as a group of GI troops arrived through a hole in the wall-



-They're here... And so is Eric... Here we go.-

Eric: "Hands in the air, Rebels!"
Convo: "Ah, Captain Vare! So great to have you with us."
Eric: "Convo...Phantom...This'll be fun." He said as he turned on his signature taser-staff.
Phantom: "Bring it on, Captain Obvious!" I said to enrage him while getting out my bo-staff.



-After Phantom had taunted the GI Captain we ran into on Iapra they charged at each other and the battle began. As we dashed to the hangar we had to avoid bullets, explosions and even laser blasts. This may very well fall into the top 3 scariest days of my life....Don't ask about the other two.-



-Eric's staff collided with mine sending a shock through my body, I attempted to swing back but he blocked it. and swung back at me, knocking me down.-



Phantom: "Uhg... You know, Eric, this kinda reminds me of old times. Our old sparring sessions got a little heated back then."
Eric: "You know I enjoyed every single victory."
Phantom: "I'm sure you did." I quipped, dropping my cape on the floor.

-I swung at him from below and knocked off his helmet.-



Eric: "Not cool, Ace. Not cool." I suppose he was joking around since he used my real name, but I had enough.

-I swung at him again, but he deflected and flung my staff in the air.-



Phantom: "Wha.." I took a second to process what just happened, but I realized too late.



-All it took was one little zap and I fell to the ground. I could feel my conciseness fading.-

Eric: "Long live the Imperium."



-We made our way to the hangar. SK-WEEPS had fled the battle to prepare the ships for us.-

SK-WEEPS: "SKWEEEE-BOO" Which translated means: "I Prepared the Red Renegade and The Aurelian Avenger for you."
Norea: "Thank you, Skweeps!"
Nick: "You guys take the Renegade, me, Ashli and Skweeps will take the Avenger."
Norea: "I'm piloting this time, Grant!"
Grant: "Okay!"



-To be honest, I wanted Nor to pilot, especially if we were gonna have someone tailing us.-

Norea: "Alright, Grant, we have to go fast. I need you to flip the red switch in the back."
Seeing as I've only flown in the Renegade once I supposed that the red switch turned on the engine...But then I flipped it.



(sorry about my hand in this pic, It's just to show off the Renegades light-brick feature)

Renegade's computer: Turbo mode activated.
Grant: "Wait, What?!"
Norea: "Buckle up, G-man! We're going for a ride."
I am shocked at how calm Nor is about this! I mean, I know she's a really good pilot, but TURBO MODE?!?



Nick: "See you guys there!"



-As we exited the red atmosphere of Zarus I could feel a tingling sensation.
In other words, I have a bad feeling about this.
-



Zebedee: "Master, the attack on Weller base was full of sucessfulness."
???: "Good. Good."
Zebedee: "What's our next step in this plan of the dominating?"



???: "Well, for the next step, I'm going to need some help from an old friend of mine... Dr. Storm."

Quoting --R.K. Blast-- Good stuff. I also like the dynamic between Phantom and Eric. It was a little confusing swapping between the two characters while remaining in 1st person, but the coloured text did help. Good luck in the GC! --Blast--

Quoting Werewolff . Dr Storm hey? Perhaps Uek is involved??? I kid, I kid, a very nice episode indeed! Lots of good action sequences, and an interesting dynamic between Phantom and Eric. However, I will say that the red text is annoyingly hard to read against the black background (for me at least). Just an observation.
Thank you! as for the text, just try turning your screen brightness up, it should work! ~G~
