ENTRY ___273

Never in my lifetime would I have expected to grow from nothing, like a flower blossoming from a tiny seed in high speed motion. Not only that was bizarre, I had also sprouted into an utterly alien world.

Everywhere I looked I saw flesh. Pulsating, undulating arrays of it.

Fractals of flesh intertwined in surreal formations, columns of flesh rising upwards like gargantuan trees of a living, breathing forest made of organs, sinews and muscles. Luminescent orange and red lights twinkled across organic strands in perpetually changing patterns of crimson starlight.

Biomatrix hung from the ceiling, held up by black, twisted branches and ligaments.

"I see you have a theme going here." I commented at her.

"This is how we eat planets, Charles."

she nodded.

I shuddered feeling grossed out at the thought of 116 planets somewhere out there covered with forests of flesh.
I also noticed that I was butt naked.

"Where are my pants, dear?"

I inquired.

In an answer to my query, spider-like limbs extended from her towards me.

"Repair protocol in progress"

she muttered dispassionately.
Thin, needly legs rapidly started to weave my tour guide uniform, right on top of me.
It was unnerving to watch. I tried not to move, concerned that she'd sew something to me.

Staying still made me more conscious of the fleshscape stretching from beneath my feet into cavernous expanse of the moon's interior.

The forest of flesh felt like a vast, complex 5th limb.

This limb was also on fire.
Elsewhere it was: drowning, getting irradiated, exploding, imploding, being crushed and mutilated in countless ways.
I became progressively more aware of the tremendous struggle of the flesh-forest against something enormous... against the inorganic sentience of the Moon itself.

The moon machines, terraformers, constructoids, maintenance and defense systems were engaged in a three, no... four, five and so on dimensional war with us.

The deeper I delved and analyzed it, the more layered and complex the conflict became.

Biomatrix was laying out all of her dirty cards, like an experienced player of planetary warfare. The fractals of flesh were composing and broadcasting viruses into the machines communication systems, sabotaging, disrupting and even taking over some of them. Wherever this occurred, the battle stretched infinitely into digital spaces.

Out in the solid world ion beams and neutron detonations flashed, trying to burn us away with ionizing radiation.

It didn't work as intended. Biomatrix was a child of the Dead Zone, apt to breaking time to reach her goals. The entirety of the forest of flesh was being anchored into the save point system like a single, multilayered body of a human subject Charles Snippy that was hugging the Moon from within. This made burning us out with nuclear hellfire a complicated issue for the machines.
I observed two monstrous, conniving intelligences, bred by the Good Directorate as metal struggled against flesh for lunar dominion. This escalating process of multilayered conflict was beginning to dismantle the Moon.

I decide to let Biomatrix handle it, letting go of the spiraling complexity of destruction.
She probably knew what she was doing...

I was just glad to have my pants back.

The Snipster continues to amaze and surpass all expectations! +1000 credits (which will probably be immediately garnished to pay his infinite debt)

This was a fantastic page, keep up the good work!

This is exactly why I love this series. You'd never see anything like this anywhere else in the post-apocalyptic genre. It's like an awesome hybrid of different ideas and concepts that come together to create a lovably ridiculous, yet fascinating world. Every new update brightens my day, and getting to see just a bit more into this incredibly complex world is one of the few things I genuinely look forward to. Thank you for immersing us in something so strange and fantastic. Can't wait for the next one!

the biomatrix is reminding me of the mercer virus from prototype/prototype 2. is the biomatrix based off of prototype? i need to know this. even if it is a copy, i think that it's still wicked awesome.

Geez, Biomatrix fighting and consuming the moon through dimensional wars and save-scumming is freakie, a freakie entity is what she is.

How did Zee Captain turned her into a fashionable scarf is beyond my understanding.
