Snippy sat next to her, on watch, his rifle leaning against his shoulder. "Excuse me?" he asked. "We're sitting outside in a snowdrift all night. How is this nice?"
"At least I'm not alone, anymore."
Snippy sighed. "That's true. I know what that's like."
"You do?" she looked over at him, eyes wide in wonder. "I thought that you were always part of Captain's army."
"Well," he said slowly. "I was wandering around by myself for a long time before I met him."
"It must have been lonely," she said, looking down at her stuffed animal. "Luckily, I had Thing to talk to, so I didn't go mad with just myself to talk to."
Snippy couldn't help but smile a little under his mask.
Scribbles flopped down onto her back and looked up at the sky, the snow settling in her hair and on her goggles. "Do you miss them?"

Chapter 2: Technical Malfunction
With a black mug of hot cocoa in his hand, Dr. Alexander Gromov sat on his bed, his respirator and mask resting on a nearby desk. He felt terribly exhausted but content, feeding on the satisfaction of having successfully finished the flying machine. Working day and night for the past few days had strained him to no end, and even though he'd had a full night sleep, his head ached horribly. But he would finally get some time to relax now. With a sigh he ran his hands over his face, wiping away any excess weariness.
Snippy and Pilot weren't around and the engineer felt glad about their absence, welcoming every second of soothing silence that came as a result of nobody arguing in the background about every little thing.
As he had finished his cocoa, he set the mug down, got up from the bed and stretched his back
An ace up zee sleeve (4/5) - RAZee Captain was wandering alone through the wasteland. He felt incredibly angry – for reasons. His entire day was ruined by the theft of the glorious scepter! Then there was the fact that it had been Stalky of all people who had taken the magical relic.An ace up zee sleeve (4/5) - RA3 years ago in Humor More Like This
These are truly lawless times, if you can't even trust your own stalker anymore!
And all that had happened during this really boring and pointless game of cards Captain had been playing with his minions. Captain had known the stalker was there, yet he had been careless with the scepter's security. He should have deployed sentries, monsters and traps to guard it like it was the custom. And yet playing cards had looked like a better idea, why exactly again?
Captain briefly removed his mask and a group of hostile traffic-lights trying to ambush him at the crossroad exploded in a shower of colorful glass and sparks. This actually lifted his mood slightly.

Stan strode around the room, checking the magazine of the rifle that he had stolen from Snippy earlier.
"Hehe... it's still full," he mentioned and deftly spun it around in his hand as if weighed only half of what it actually did. "Which means there's plenty of bullets for all of you. Isn't that great?"
With agile hands he shoved the magazine back in and readied the gun to shoot.
"The boss told me to kill your captain last. So... which of you two morons wants to die first?"
Engie shifted around nervously while Pilot kept throwing quick glances over to the chair.
"You look pretty scared, fatty," Stan chuckled and stared down at the engineer. "But don't worry, I'll make it quick for you."
As the rifle was pointed at him, Alexander yelped and huddled up against the wall in fright.

"We're all part of a chain. But sometimes, one part goes missing and a replacement is needed."
Chapter 1: Assault
In search of answers on the mysteries of Captain, Snippy warily snuck through the city, his target within sight. It was one of those days when Captain would decide to go on a long walk alone, then suddenly disappear and not return again until late in the evening. Nobody ever found out what he did or where he went. But this time, Snippy was following him imperceptibly.
Asking never revealed the answers to his questions, for Captain would feign ignorance and simply change the topic to pull his head out of the loop. So now Snippy was on a... discovery mission (which totally didn't count as stalking), close enough to keep the leader in vision and just distant enough to avoid being seen.

He had happened upon the room by pure chance. The Captain's disappearance had put the Engineer on edge. That man was the key to his survival and it was only a matter of time before some hazard of the wasteland would claim his life. Surprisingly it just took a few hours to locate him and Gromov was sure it was only because of the luck that Captain seemed to rub off onto others. He found Captain holed up in a mostly collapsed building, the only part that remained intact was a small dark room. Breathing a sigh of relief he was about to enter the room to reprimand the man for disappearing without a trace for days but stopped, his boot hovering just over the threshold. Captain's purple lenses glinted from the darkness. Gromov backed away. He never entered the room.
And Captain never left.
The engineer left the man alone; he had hope that eventually Captain would come out on his own. Each day Gromov would come to the room but the Captain never moved from that spot. How t

It had survived things that no mug should have had to endure.
It had been dropped off cliffs, plunged into radioactive water, used to hold questionable substances and once travelled several hundred kilometres after Pilot tied a helium balloon to it. It had been thrown at Snippy countless times. It had suffered the indignity of being sat on by Engie after the Captain left it lying on a chair.
It had never been washed in its life.
But in the end, all it took was one little nudge, and the mug the great, glorious mug was reduced to a few shards of broken ceramic and a spatter of sad-looking tea.

He adjusted his gas mask and goggles as he looked around the room for the others. Captain and Snippy were nowhere to be seen, but Pilot sat crouched on the floor, on the other side of the glass box containing the egg.
"Pilot, do you know where Uh, what are you doing?" Engie interrupted his own question when he saw that Pilot was quickly turning his head to the sides in an attempt to look in all directions at the same time, with his katana ready to attack.
"Captain told me to guard Bob. Captain said I must guard better than I have ever guarded before." Pilot answered.
"Alright Wait, Bob ?"
Engie noticed a small note lying on the glass box. "Bob" had been written on it with a crayon. It was no doubt Captain's handwriting. So he had apparently changed his attitude since last night.
"Where did Captain and Snippy go?" Engie asked.

Deep in thought, the engineer sighed and silently continued walking behind Pilot, alongside his new, taller companion. His wounded comrade lay in Stan's arms, blankly gazing up at the sky and trembling horribly with every breath.
"Stay awake, Charles, you hear me?" Alex reassured him, gently stroking his hand over Snippy's head. "We'll pull you through this. Just hang in there a little bit longer."
The sniper seemed to nod, but it was hard to tell as they walked.
As the storm subsided a bit, the dense air in the city finally began to clear, but the sky remained covered with thick clouds as always.
"Home in sight!" Pilot yelled suddenly, and picked up speed, but the heavy load on his back and the debilitating cold didn't allow him to run very fast, so the group

Greetings, fans of Romantically Apocalyptic
Today, we present to you the script for RA episode ONE as a pilot episode, composed by several writers from the RA production team (Rythmear, Oddshot and Alexiuss)
Because this is a 100% DeviantArt production and we have NO budget or corporate support- it is now up to YOU whether this episode and further episodes will be released.
I will now proceed to outline the costs of filming this episode and explain how you can help out, so I can release this episode for everyone here on DeviantArt, and make MORE episodes in the future, using already purchased props to make this the FIRST DeviantArt hosted, and fan sponsored TV show.

Then they had piled firewood old newspapers and other flameable things in a semicircle around it and finally started the fire. As long as the winddirection wouldn’t suddenly change, making sparks flying over and turning it into a pile of ashes, the couch would be defrosted and dried within ... Engie actually had no idea.

On the other hand he just wanted this mission be done with. It was a simple equation:
Mr. Snippy = tired, angry, crazy sniper.
Mr. Snippy + couch = well rested, less angry, less crazy sniper.

And at least he could now sit down, near a warm fire and relax for a while, unless of course...

Hey folks! It is now 6pm. You know what that means. It is interview time! Let us begin.
Here is how the interview works: You can all ask questions and chat freely in the chatroom called AtAChat. I will be copy-pasting your questions to Alexiuss and he will answer them in live time in ATAInterview.
We conduct the interview this way to avoid having the artist spammed with too many questions all at once, and to reduce text clutter so that you can all read the artist's responses to the questions.
A special thank you goes out to our lovely mods, ~Melancholy-Minds and ~Twilight-Zero!
Please be aware that we do our best to get as many questions answered as possible, however, if we do not choose your question to send to the artist, please do not be offended. It does not mean it was not a good question. It is just not possible for the artist to answer all questions. Thank you for your understanding.

And that's the reason why the two of you were screaming like schoolgirls just now?" the sniper inquired, crushing something small, green and glowy that had far too many legs under the heel of his boot.
"Well, it was a rather nasty prank Seven played on us there," Engie explained a touch lamely.
"Captain would never do such a thing, you fluffy scuff! It was an intruder! I bet it was that nasty stalker again!"
"Yeah sure, a stalker, because there are that many people out there who have nothing better to do than stalk Captain. There is no stalker!"

genre: hurt/comfort, friendship, fluff
characters: mostly Engie
summary:As a light sleeper, Engie has plenty of time to observe and wonder over his crewmates´ sleeping habits. His observations leave him a bit grumpy, but Pilot is already working to find a solution ...
Maybe it is because he could never get enough sleep when Annet was still sending. Maybe it is because even the reality of post apocalyptic life is not as dreadful as his nightmares back then were. When Charles Snippy is asleep, he could as well be dead. The engineer is sure that even a rifle fired next to the sniper could not wake him up. Of course this is beneficial to Captain´s and Pilot´s habit of pulling pranks on Snippy. Gromov clearly remembers the day the tour guide woke up dressed in a pink rabbit costume because Captain wanted him to replace the Easter Bunny, claiming the real one had been abducted by aliens...
Captain, on the other hand, rarely sleeps.

Early in the morning -for whatever reason- Captain had declared a ‘community-service-day’ for the squad. Cleaning up the old station building was not exactly the worst job Snippy had ever had to do for his crazy commander so far. But spending six hours of scrubbing graffiti off of dirty concrete walls, all the time knowing that in less than a week they would be completely smeared with ‘art’ again was not exactly improving his morale.
Engie had tried to protest that it was completely useless to repair the station speakers but to no avail. Captain had made him do it nevertheless and then used the system to sing ‘Que Sera’ at full volume until the minions’ ears were bleeding.

The ground draws closer at a disconcerting rate as I crash from heaven with Pilot, and for a split second I perceive a silver glint below me, wondering what it could be. But time is elapsing far too quickly for my mind to process a single thought, other than the sustaining terror of dying within the next few seconds.
I close my eyes, awaiting my deadly collision with the ground - then my reality shatters into a thousand pictures exploding in my mind.
It all ends as I finally come to, regaining my senses.
I am alive...?
As I awake draped over a pile of debris, a surge of agonizing pain shoots through my chest, welcoming me back to reality.
I suck in a breath, but something clogs my throat and I burst into a painful coughing fit that leaves a metallic taste in my mouth. I gasp for air after somewhat recovering, and despite my burning throat I repress the urge to cough again.
