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

Misfortune always strikes in the most unexpected moments - and it doesn't take vacations.
It was one of those days when everything went wrong that could possibly go wrong.
It happened as Engie and Pilot were roaming through one of the lesser devastated, dark building of the city, with Snippy in the lead.
Rummaging through all the things he found along the way and held what he considered might be useful in the future in his hands, Engie almost forgot about his surroundings until he heard a cracking noise that was followed by a scream.
“God-fucking-damn-it!!” he heard Snippy groan.
Pilot secured the engineer's back as they followed the sound of the marksman's voice to his location.
As they reached their comrade, Engie stood frozen in place, the things he had been carrying clattering to the floor. The sniper's left leg had submerged in a hole

Chapter 1: Engie's Masterpiece
It must have been a little over three months ago that Captain gave Engie the order to build a flying machine. Initially the Russian engineer objected to taking on such a seemingly impossible task, but finally agreed to after Pilot incessantly heckled him to the brink of insanity.
Doctor Gromov needed parts before he could begin constructing "the most glorious flying machine," as Captain put it, so all throughout the months that followed he requested the other two minions to fetch him various scraps to aid in the completion of his project. Every part on the list was successfully retrieved sooner or later, depending on how long it took to coerce reluctant Snippy into getting dragged along on a search.
Every time the sniper was told to go scavenge the wasteland with Pilot, he acted stubbornly. He was persistent in

Chapter 3: You shoe
The noise led Sniper to another pile of broken steel and branches, but something seemed different.
After scrutinizing the mess, all his alarm bells suddenly rang as he spotted an arm sticking out from below the steel wing. Intuitively he started to push a heavy branch off the top, then he proceeded to heave the massive steel wing, revealing a prone form underneath.
Snippy dropped the large wing near the aviator and knelt down beside him to search for injuries, fearing the worst. After coughing a few times, Pilot shifted slowly and groaned.
“Hey man, are you alright?” Charles checked with his comrade, and helped him turn over so he could sit against the side of the wing.
“My leg... It hurts so much... and my left shoulder is- aaauugh!” the aviator suddenly cried.
It seemed that Snippy had touched a sore spot in his ministrat
