The plot thickens...
About this creation
--40 Years in the Future
-August 16
-6:56 am

--MAS territory
-Ammons County
-Region formerly known as Iowa












So this is what we call the Trucktor... Truck, tractor... You get it? When we first came here, Bryan could only afford some horse-drawn equipment for the fields. So a few years ago, he took out a loan and scrounged up a bunch of old parts, and we built this bad boy together. We installed got a cargo bed and even a place to hook up the plows and stuff. It was probably the best summer of my life...





... and of course, our productivity has shot up exponentially.





Bryan: "Here we go!"

*Putt-a-putt-a-VAROOM!*




















Me: "Look, can you at least explain why me handling a gun is such a big problem for you?"





Bryan: "... Andre, I-I... I am your father, and I don't like you touching that rifle."

Well thanks, Bryan. That clears things up.










Farmer: "Mornin', Bryan!"

Bryan: "How's it, Wallace?"





Yeah, my dad's got a pretty big rep around here... He's one of those compulsive do-gooders; helps a lot of people.





I'm not like him at all... I just don't see why he feels like he needs to be sure that everyone else is okay, when it's hard enough for him to take care of us in the first place... I just don't get it. Guess I just take after my mother.





And here's another thing I don't get about Bryan: the man sneaks out at night every so often, doing who-knows-what! I'm not sure how long he's been doing it, but I first found out when I was, like, ten... I heard him go out the door around midnight, and he woke me up at four in the morning when he came back in.





Heck, a few weeks ago, I woke up to find him out cold on the front step! He had three bullet wounds in the torso... I yelled at him about it for an hour, and he still says he's gonna keep going. I'm scared for him: he's lucky to have lived to be fifty-two as it is, and the last thing he needs is to throw himself into a hail of gunfire.





Hey, look! Civilization! Yep, we're pulling into town!





This is Ammons, the seat of one of the seven counties that make up the MAS. This is where the markets, factories, schools, and and pretty much everything else is. About as close to Old World living as it gets around here.





Bryan: "Ah'right, here's Ammons High! Study hard and show 'em who's boss; gotta end your Senior year with a bang, right?"





Me: "Heh, yeah. Thanks for the ride, Dad."

Bryan: "My genuine pleasure... I'll pick you up at four?"

Me: "Alright, see you--"

???: "--Hey! Andre!"





Rachel and Roy Hodges. My best friends.





Me: "Hey guys! Where've you been all summer?"

Roy: "Heh, working. You really think Grandmother can tackle all that land by herself? Hah! Just tell me you've been doing something productive for once!"

Me: "Actually, I've been working on a little project for a while now; it's really cool! You guys oughta come over and check it out sometime!"





Roy: "Eh, yeah, maybe! Hey, let's get inside; I wanna find my locker!"

Me: "Yeah, okay!"











Me: "So Rachel, you got any post-graduation plans yet?"

Rachel: *laughs* "W-what?"

Me: "Wh-why is that funny?"

Rachel: "Sorry, Andre... I just think that's a bit of a funny question... I mean, what did you think I was gonna do? Go to Law School?"

Me: "Well, I mean, no; but-- er, you ARE capable of it-- I jus--"

Rachel: "Chill, silly; I gotcha! As for what I wanna do, if I am able to get that scholarship for the Institution, I'd totally jump on that... But since we all know how easy a feat that is, I guess I'll most likely try to work at a factory or something... Anything that isn't agracultural. I'm so sick of farms..."





Rachel: "Oh! I gotta run! I have Physics all the way over in the east hall!"

Me: "Yeah, I have Calc with Roy..."

Rachel: *laughs* "Oooh, have fun with that!"





Heh... You bet, Rach.





Ahh, good ol' Ammons High. Great to be back.


--To Be Continued--


Thanks for swinging by! Sorry this one took a little while; I really want this story to have halfway-decent looking sets, so that might prolong intervals between episodes. Gotta get started on the script for Ep3 now; I'm also working on a really cool vig to break the monotony. So, yeah, thanks for viewing this! Feel free to drop your C&C below!

-Andre

Quoting Mastermind ? O.o Are you still on the pages dude?
What's up, man? :D Well... Sort of... Haha I recently started checking in here to see what people are up too, so I might start commenting a little more again. That said, my computer and MOCpages have never really gotten along super well, so I probably won't be posting stuff for a while... So yeah haha...

Hey, bro! Good to hear from you; yeah, these last six months, life has kinda hit me head-on... Haven't had much Lego time in general, unfortunately. :/ I started lurking here again recently, and I might get a little more active over the summer... Guess I'll just have to see... :P

Quoting F-ZERO's #1 Fanatic Oo, it's like I'm reading a fanfic of some sort. I hope he starts dating Rach, Lol. I'm loving this.

Quoting Tris B Definitely one of the best stories i've read on MOC pages. Is it similar to life in Iowa in 2012?
Thanks for the lofty praise! :D I actually don't live in Iowa, so I couldn't tell you for sure; I picked out the region for geographical reasons that will make more sense as the story continues. Iowa is a very agrarian state, but it's not in post-apocalyptic shambles like the one depicted here... Although some people might tell ya differently ;P
