Alright. Look…listen, a couple of you are interested in knowing the details, and some of you could give a rat’s-ass about any of this, so, to those who find it helpful in spending the time to collect the asses of rats just to hand them out, respectfully you can keep it and eat it all to yourself. I got enough gut-rot goin on without having to choke down your offerings. Now that I got that out of the way…ladies and gentlemen! …
Wait…no, this is not an announcement. I’m hear to fill you in on what I think might work for the fan-ficiton and, also, to hear you out on whether or not these ideas would mesh well with existing XO lore. I’m hoping to avoid contradictions and, if possible, bridge existing gaps with our own creative ideas.
As it is:
The Ravaging takes place in the not so distant future where alien technology has run rampant across the Earth, and L.A. Diesel, a hapless survivor in the wastelands of this ravaged Earth, finds herself in an unending cycle of brainwashing as she fights for her life.
I deliberately ended this cartoon with our character getting her mind wiped by a Ravager because, in Crossout, the mission “Awakening” starts out with our character having amnesia, and trying to piece together what’s going on. People have asked me if I’m going to continue the Ravaging cartoon series and, at this point, the answer is officially: “It does continue, you just have to be a part of the story by going in game and playing Awakening.”
With that project done, I’ve moved onto the next fan-fiction, The Lost Wolves. I did not have initial intentions of mixing the 2 stories but, thanks to encouragement found here, I think I’ve found a way to bridge the gaps. How?
I’ve created a video where we have narration done by established characters LA Diesel and Demitri, voiced over The Lost Wolves visual story-line. How can this be if, in the Ravaging, Demitri was made into a spiderbot? Time is the answer, I think, and to that extent there is a considerable time gap between the end of The Ravaging and the start of The Lost Wolves. Demitri has been salvaged from the wreck of the spiderbot and, thanks to a chance encounter with Lloyd (on a good day) he’s been fixed up, but his brains still a bit scrambled. In the video, LA is trying hard to bring Demitri up to speed about the changes that have taken place while he was botting around the place.
Going forward, I want to use the Lost Wolves to cover how XO has changed over it’s time in existence. And, to do that, I need real, legitimate feedback on all this. Not rat-asses. Who want’s to help and, also, what do you have to say?
Sidenote: while typing this, a bothersome fly would not stop pestering me. It landed and crawled under this recently opened fortune …
So I reached out and took that fortune’s word and moved on with life, no anger about any of it.
