AlEiLiCeDa PloQu (Prologue)


"Begone knave!", a harrowing voice echoes. Heads roll across the dune. Amongst them, a crown adorns its gory shape. "We the people will be our own masters!", chanted a crowd, ever thirsty for blood. A young princess sneaks pass the mob, shedding tears, but hopelessly incapable in this dire situation. For if they ever discover her whereabouts, another head will roll. She makes a gesture of remembrance, and swiftly disappears in the shadows...

The year is 6699, 7775 in Earth rotations across the Sun. Unlike other solar systems, this red planet, Ygghaven, is the sole orbiting mass of its blue star (Siriusly) greater in size than an asteroid. The world is in chaos. Whether it's the democratic revolution in the North, ignorance of the East, hopeless nature of control in the West, or unknown phenomenons of the South, the world never ceases to change. In this story, we shall focus on the unlikely meeting between Alex, our protagonist who happens to be intersex, and the leaders of each major power. They will gather in Dundyll, the crater of the collision between Ygghaven and its moon, Dvaven, where time, space, and matter are frozen in nothingness. The journey has yet to begin...

"Please don't touch me", said Alex, as they were being hit on by a grisly clown. His grizzly stature frightens most, especially our young adventurer. After a swift grab, Alex suddenly faces the clown smelling a distinct odour from his breath. S/he falls backwards, into the arms of a Plora, otherwise known as primitive people of carbon base. "Young lady, please ignore the buffoon. His unsightly nature is not for the meek", the Plora said. "What? Who are you?", questioned Alex. "My apologies for not stating that earlier, I am known as Liez", he stated. "Don't just go ignoring me you hillbilly! I wasn't done with her yet!", shouted the clown. "Begone with you vile joker, this will only sting a bit", Liez said as he hits a pressure point that immediately drops the clown. "Oh my god, will he be okay?", Alex worries. "Not to be concerned my lady, he will live another day, only to forget this whole incident", he assures. "Oh thank goodness". Suddenly, the day breaks, and a crowd gathers. "We'll have to take this elsewhere it appears", Liaz commented. Then he promptly carries them in his arms, and jumps out of view. Unfortunately, that made our protagonist faint and darkness envelopes their vision...

"Who does that shady ninja think he is, challenging my empire?!", declares Eigarl, the tyrant dragon. "Sir, we believe Darkstroke is a serious threat to our nation. We must take immediate action!", his subordinates plead. "Now you people dare question my word?! Such blasphemy will not be tolerated any further! Give me that ninja's declaration of war immediately!", commands the dragon. "Yes sir!". Meanwhile, on the other side of the continent, the people are blissfully unaware that their ruler has challenged the great Western power. "Fu fu fu... I must say, that dragon is sure easy to deceive", mocked Darkstroke, stroking his pet snake. "But my lord, what should we do with about notifying our people?", asks his subjects. "Sheep will be sheep, panic is not within our interests. Let them be", states the ninja. "I will personally read Eigarl's response if he's ever so polite to make one before attacking". Darkstroke's suspicion were confirmed, his scouts were mercilessly slain in public, and war was declared. Both sides set their sights on the collapsing North, where gaining that territory will be of strategic importance. Here is the start of world war, and the alien Quex's at the South await for it in relish...

Next up will be Part 1: where our princess Celeste goes undercover, Liez discovers Alex's secret gender, and the East collides with the West trying to take over the North. Until then, may you watch in the sidelines with the Quex, hopefully not thinking of invasion.
