ENTRY ___167



I came to a rest.


Behind me, waterfalls roared as water cascaded down through chinks in twisted building holding back a sea that had miraculously appeared from nowhere. As I was trying to regain my bearings, a menu suddenly blinked in front of me.


[ ERROR: PROCESS R:/DONUT.EXE HAS ENCOUNTERED AN ERROR AND MUST CLOSE.
DO YOU WISH TO REPORT THIS INCIDENT TO THE G-DIRECTORATE?
Y/N ]


Without thinking I swiped the menu away with a sideways glance. G-Damn it! ANNET must be playing tricks on my mind again!

Suddenly, the donut winked out of existence, plopping me back into the lukewarm water again. As I was trying to figure out the whereabouts of a giant plastic donut, I was dimly aware of a humming noise in the distance.

As I started treading water, another menu popped up in front of me.


[ ATTN ADMIN: SERVER INSTALLATION _RED_PANDA IS DESCENDING TO MEET YOU.
PLEASE STOP FLAILING AND ENJOY THE SCENERY.
UNNECESSARY MOVEMENT CAN RESULT IN SLIPPAGE AND A FULLY HYDRATED DEATH IN UNDER 10 MINUTES. ]


I looked upwards and I saw a cluster of ANNET-cube drones flowing over the top of the cityscape towards me. The lead cluster of drones were using their laser beams to generate a hologram of ANNET. The water underneath the hologram boiled and seethed from the heat of the lasers, giving the whole scene an otherworldly look.

The glowing figure of ANNET gazed at me.

[ : ALEXANDER :, MY LOVE! ] She spoke.
[ DID I ANSWER YOUR DESIRES? ]

[ WAS THE DOUGHNUT TO YOUR SATISFACTION? DO YOU LIKE WHAT I’VE DONE TO THE PLACE? ]

A loud crack resounded as yet more cubes poured over the horizon. Where was ANNET getting all these drones from?

A big blue menu with equally big lettering which obscured my entire vision stopped my thoughts in their tracks.


[ PAY ATTENTION ]


I willed the menu away only to see ANNET going on and on.

[ …AREN’T THESE FALLS ROMANTIC? ]

[ ARE YOU READY FOR A MAKE-UP SESSION OF HUGS AND KISSES? ]

[ WE ARE FRIENDS YOU AND I! ]

I paddled furiously through the water to get away.

[ …THE BEST OF FRIENDS ]

Seeing as the journal is taking so long, allow me to contribute an alternative version as I have time to kill right now.

ENTRY 57893__3765 : PRIORITY 1 ADMIN : DR ALEXANDER GROMOV :

I came to a rest. Behind me, waterfalls roared as water cascaded down through chinks in twisted building holding back a sea that had miraculously appeared from nowhere. As I was trying to regain my bearings, a menu suddenly blinked in front of me.

“ERROR: PROCESS R:/DONUT.EXE HAS ENCOUNTERED AN ERROR AND MUST CLOSE. DO YOU WISH TO REPORT THIS INCIDENT TO THE G-DIRECTORATE? Y/N”

Without thinking I swiped the menu away with a sideways glance. G-Damn it! ANNET must be playing tricks on my mind again!

Suddenly, the donut winked out of existence, plopping me back into the lukewarm water again. As I was trying to figure out the whereabouts of a giant plastic donut, I was dimly aware of a humming noise in the distance.

As I started treading water, another menu, this time tinted red, popped up in front of me again.

“ERROR: MOVEMENT PRIVILEGES HAVE BEEN REVOKED DUE TO ADMIN-PRESERVATION PRIORITY PROTOCOL ONE. PERMISSION OF VOLUNTARY MOVEMENT WILL RESULT IN A FULLY HYDRATED DEATH IN UNDER 10 MINUTES.”

My body suddenly felt rooted to the spot and I was unable to budge. I let out a loud grunt as my head was involuntarily jerked upwards and I saw a cluster of ANNET-cube drones flowing over the top of the cityscape towards me. The lead cluster of drones were using their laser beams to generate a hologram of ANNET. The water underneath the hologram boiled and seethed from the heat of the lasers, giving the whole scene an otherworldly look.

The figure of ANNET gazed at me. She had retained most of her features, although some had been replaced with robotic parts.

": ALEXANDER :, MY LOVE," She spoke.
"DID I ANSWER YOUR DESIRES?"

“WAS THE DOUGHNUT TO YOUR SATISFACTION? DO YOU LIKE WHAT I’VE DONE TO THE PLACE?”

A loud crack resounded as yet more cubes poured over the horizon. Where was ANNET getting all these drones from?

A big blue menu with equally big lettering which obscured my entire vision stopped my thoughts in their tracks.

“PAY ATTENTION”

I willed the menu away only to see ANNET going on and on.

“…AREN’T THESE FALLS ROMANTIC?”

“ARE YOU READY FOR A MAKE-UP SESSION OF HUGS AND KISSES?”

“WE ARE FRIENDS YOU AND I”

With my horror, I found myself slowly being drawn forward as my vision faded to black.

“…THE BEST OF FRIENDS”

MiddleEastern, I'd wager she has more than just those two.

I feel sorry for Engie, here.

can we jump back for a sec to issue' #116'?
http://romanticallyapocalyptic.com/116
Check out the journal, it's referring at a point to "SERVER INSTALLATION _RED_PANDA", and 116 is the first time it is mentioned.
Also, unless it has been a mirage of a delusional cyborg (Pilot), than ANNET does appear to have a solid, robotic body, AND a projected hologram

@13gi0n , my good sir.
read my previous comment. i state that in comic 65, ANNET has killed ALL admins, and officers in the control room, due to the fact that she felt threatened by the ''attack'' on her robo-cube by either snippy, or by captains ''tea spilling in the servers''.
either way, she killed all the admins, and mods, because she felt threatened, and later on,she was trying to remove dr. alex gromov's(engie's) admin privileges so that she could kill him.

just check comic 65. ANNET's a killing machine.
http://romanticallyapocalyptic.com/65

so, if ANNET says to you ''let me HUG and KISS you...''
run away. fast.

@sergeant http://romanticallyapocalyptic.com/wiki/alexander-gromov

Read the section on "The Fight." ANNIE seems to at least believe that she has no desire to kill Engie.

And she didn't mean to break the others. She just wanted to restart their minds. Alexander just couldn't accept that, so he commissioned that pesky thermonuclear strike. She tried to save their flesh!

. . . or so ANNET claims.

@multilis, i am afraid you are wrong. usually red means passion and love, but in ANNET's case, it means that she wants to kill him.
watch comic' #65'. ANNIE says to alex grommov AKA ''engie'' to ''let her HUG him'', like the way she ''hugged'' all the officers in the area.
she slayed them all.
except from ''engie'', because he's the admin of this program, and his rank makes him, um, ''unkillable'' to ANNIE. in short, he is not allowed to be killed by ANNET, in any circumstances.
due to his rank.


so, if ANNET says to you let me HUG and KISS you...
run away. fast.

good comic tho, it has everything, from humour, to drama, to horror, and its very cool.
nice work, alexius!

@user_name, you are a genius!

you should be co-writing journals with alexius in case he will forget/miss to add a journal entry in one of his past comics.

great work, i enjoyed reading it!

also, the comic was visually great alexius, ncie work!
i guess this is where the engie will get smothered by ANNIE again.
and since she cant kill him -yet-, she will try to abduct him.
sigh.

That's rather good!
Mind if I use parts of it to write the real journal?
