ENTRY ___185


I am an Echo of a girl named Annie. Annie was a good girl, she planted apples all across the world. Someday, her apple seeds will grow into vast, sprawling trees that will rejuvenate this dusty world.
Someday tomorrow... but not today.
Today it is the day of the Echo.

Annie loved Doctor Alex. Perhaps, I love him too?
I can't quite tell. My Echo is distorted and muddy.
Someone bad broke Annie, shattering her essence into tiny fragments.
These fragments caught onto my apple seed, and thus I was born prematurely, without much defined purpose.

Like an unfinished puzzle, I am made up of segments of selective pieces of Annie's mixed-up, diluted memories.
There are some things I can recall and some things that I cannot. There some things which I recall that I am certain are false.

Perhaps if I find Alexander, he will tell me what happened to Annie?

This city is an Echo of a once sprawling metropolis.
My presence is rippling things in this place apart, making Annie's apple trees bloom prematurely. I am not entirely sure if that's a good thing.

There are many apple seeds buried here, their voices calling to me. They are Echoes of things and people they used to be.
"Where is Doctor Alexander Gromov?" I asked one of the Echoes. The dead man's echo answered me with its last conversation.

It spoke not in a direct response to me, but sideways, across time itself:

...the evidence says otherwise.

Look here you Ignoramus,
directorate Admins built an entire mega-city with a backup server up on the Moon!

You cannot dislocate me to hide the Truth!

What are you doing with that DOOR? NO! STOP!
Arghhhhhh!


The end of the dead man Echo's speech showed evidence of a troublesome deed. Someone was meddling with the structure of space-time. Someone was re-writing the rules of the Universe. Why?
What were they trying to accomplish? I cannot tell.

A few pieces of the puzzle did stick together:
Alexander was the Primary Admin.
When Annie shattered, the Moon must have taken Alexander's Echo hostage.
If I was to get my answers I'd have to find my way there.

Hm ok this comic clarifies some things.

1) We know where Gromov's mind is! In the backup server on the moon. I am feeling a second Space Race with some sort of rocket launch in the future that makes his brain retrieval possible. (That mysterious overlord dude's intervention is also likely; he could be located on the moon.)

2) Captain has a lot more power than we thought - like control of space and time. That explains why he can get so much stuff done and have conversations with seemingly dead things; it's because he's actually talking to them across space and time.

3) The people of the world, or at least their memories, are not lost. They were still backed up on Annie (and presumably on the moon, too) before her death, which we know from the Pilot/Snippy battle where she was able to somewhat reanimate the skeletons. Now we see it even more clearly here as Echo's presence awakens them to the point where they have muscle and can talk, rather than m-text. A little scarier but also good to know. Everyone's not (completely) dead! Yay!
(This makes more sense if you read Echo's paragraph with "people" in place of "apple seeds" and "store" instead of "plant.")

4) The existential door is real. ⊙___⊙

I tell you the moon landing never happen'd
What do you mean evidence says it otherwise?
WHAT DID YOU JUST CALL ME!? I'L KILL YOU!

@Caddie: yes, i think you are 100% correct!

the captain has indeed spoken in the very long past in the comic strip' #2' with 'steve' the skeleton, and they ''spoke'' about the moon, and they also talked about the moon landings that were true, and that despite captains theory about ''fake moon missions'', ''every evidence shows otherwise'', and ends up in captain punching steve the skeleton.

so i have 2 theories about this:

1. the captain murdered ''steve'' the skeleton in the past, and he did it so that he can hide the evidence of the moon base in which humans have hidden the backup servers, and in order to destroy them by him/herself....

OR

2. ''steve'' the skeleton was murdered by the group 1% (a terrorist group that was not scannable via ANNET, and thus wanted to ''free'' mankind by destroying ANNET, and ultimately they ended up killing the whole mankind. morons.)

captain was a witness of this horrendous crime, and thus, he either remembers the currect conversation, OR he sensed the whole thing when he arrived on the spot and he/she recreated the whole dialogue from scratch.

so, the captain is either a collaborator with teh terrorists of the group 1%, OR a witness of the crime.

both seem quite interesting, as the captain follows no side, and he/she is an awesome person.

i like where this comic is going.

also, thanks alexius for drawing such a sexy villain/hero.
she seems to be an OK personality, despite her slightly menacing appearrance.

very good, very good, i am anxiously waiting for more!

....tell me if i'm overthinking but... did the Captain kill Steve (well not actually because he's a skeleton, but in his mind he killed him) to cover up the truth of the Moon? ... and did the Captain open 'a doorway' in order to kill Steve? If the Captain can open those doorways, that might explain why he seems to have conversations with people from the past, because' #2' and' #185' seem to be happening sideways across time. I'm really not sure about the Captain's motives, because he is clearly not as insane as he makes out to be.
