As the sun rises slowly and brightly as all sun’s do, cloud had a vision in mind..a vision that one day the entire world would be united in harmony, she was going to start and found her own kingdom. But it would prove to be easier said than done because as soon as she had found her members, she had elected herself as president, however maverick wasn’t having it, with a point of a finger he asked “is this really a democratic land!? You’ve just elected yourself! How is that any fair?!” As cloud watched her citizens murmur in a fusion of agreement and confusion, she had enounced that she had founded this land and that she could just as easily get rid of it. Yet again maverick attempting to turn her citizens against her, mentions that its a dictatorship and cloud had no right to call her a leader of a “civil democratic land” this backfired as the citizens all began to argue and fight, low blows everywhere, it all suddenly stopped as a bullet had just BARELY missed cloud. though it wasn’t from maverick everyone presumed so. Ticker the creeper would begin attempting to kill maverick while astafan would help him get away, as maverick left he shout with words universally understood
“This means war”
Not even 10 minutes after hiding, a search party was out for them. But as astafan pondered what to do, maverick was already making plans. “When the day of reckoning comes, you and i will infiltrate the city, as you bring down chaos with you hellfire powers, I’ll be distracting the citizens.” This plan was good but astafan questioned “who’s gonna get cloud?” That’s when he showed astafan his bag of money as he stated “a mercenary has me covered”
As Electroshield was making potions and practicing his swordsman abilities, cloud had knocked on his door.”
Electro: oh hey
Cloud: hey so, my democratic land is being threatened by astafan and maverick, and I could REALLY use your help in the upcoming war because maverick has a plan and i dunno what it is...only you have the future sight i need on my side”
Electro: cloud...what’s wrong with you?
Electro: you literally came all the way here to ask me to fight for a land i was never apart of? I’M LITERALLY A MERCENARY CLOUD, why would I get interested in your political bullcrap for no reason?! YOU DIDNT EVEN HOLD AN ELECTION I BET! You’re just sick, now leave. As electro closed the door, cloud couldn’t help a sense of doom washing over her. Even if everyone had shown up to help her, she wouldn’t be able to predict what maverick’s plan is, she can’t fight what she doesn’t know...but she could try right? But deep down she knew, this would be the end.
Not even 7 hours later maverick asked for the same favor cloud did, “help me plan against my enemy” though maverick had brought more than enough for his service, Electro had integrity, he wasn’t picking a side and he won’t fight in the war and that was final, however astafan had other plans
Astafan: *while using his fire* ALRIGHT LISTEN UP! YOU’RE GONNA HELP US WIN THE WAR OR IM GONNA BURN YOUR HOUSE WITH YOU IN IT
Maverick: dude, calm dow-
Electrosheild: that’s exactly why I’m not helping you. You just threatened to kill me if i didnt help you. I’m here to relax and kill who I’m told but I’m not going to fight for you or against you during this, you tried to start an uprising didnt you? You figure it out *closes door*
And just like that, with both sides without the help of Electro, they had gone home already planning and gathering materials to fight the war, as cloud gave her army gun’s and battle gear, maverick was already infiltrating the cloudlands to steal gear, and for astafan? He was at Electro’s house burning it to the ground..but he should’ve thought better, because as soon as electro got home and saw his house destroyed, he had gone back to cloudlands, but not to yell again, to fight along side clouds army..he said he remembered the plan and had told cloud when and how they would strike, as he geared up, he had a plan as well, maverick had a storage unit where he had stored his armor and weapons he would use, Electro just so happened to have some leftover explosives and showed cloud where the armory lay hidden and with one bit of TNT, the maverick army now had virtually nothing to fight with. With this in mind cloud thanked Electro for his help, telling him that the favor he had did for her land wouldn’t be forgotten, though Electro had one last thing he wanted to say
Electro: cloud i wanna thank you for trusting me and stuff, like i was really rude back at my cabin but yknow I’m glad we’re now on the same side
Cloud: mhm no worries
Electro: but i do wanna say….I’m an anarchist.
Electro: i- like this entire war actually, is all because, you have power you’ve put yourself in and someone wants it, power leeds to greed cloud
Cloud: what do you- mean
Electro: what I’m saying is...if you really want me to believe i can actually depend on you to do stuff for the good of humanity and not your land, I’d suggest you disband it after the war.
Cloud was shocked...how could her own warrior suggest the end...then she believed that maverick had convinced him to betray her cause, as Electro grappling hooked to a nearby tree confused he stated that he refused maverick’s deal and that his house was burned down by maverick’s ally, but that didnt matter to cloud, she had created the cloudlands and if anything, Electro had no right to tell her what she should do for “humanity” Electro had stated himself he wasn’t a citizen of the cloudlands and told him to leave back to the north...and as Electro did so...he looked to cloud and said loud enough to hear
“I’ll be here tomorrow to help prepare..but your tea party will end...I’ll make sure of it myself”
The next day, maverick, and astafan had stared in shock as they saw the burning mess that once was their armory..now with the war in about a day they went out to find materials only to find nothing as they stared at each other they knew who had done
Astafan had realized what he had done he had gone to electro’s cabin which just so happened to have a hidden armory to apologize for burning his house and attempting to get as much recourses as possible
Electro: oh. It’s you
Astafan: electro, please..you’ve taken out of armory, we’re even just let me get some weapons!
Electro: NO! Ok, you burned my residence that I spent HOURS BUILDING AND GAINING RECOURSES BY HAND! You burned it to the ground just because I wouldn’t ally with you on an issue i had no business with! But now...hehe...clouds gonna kill you, i have allied my self with the cloudlands and now you will pay 100,000,000,000 fold buddy...you’re done for...now leave..i have work to do
Astafan: please dont do this we’re so close
Electro: *brandishes his knife and threatens to stab astafan*
Astafan: OK! Ok...i’m going…*he leaves*
Helpless..as astafan came back empty handed, that’s the feeling that washed over him. He had nothing to fight with. But he couldn’t surrender he knew his life would end, but he wouldn’t go down without a fight. He planned to strike at night as everyone would be asleep, and as astafan nodded in. Agreement, they were now ahead of the shield
The war. Today’s the day, it could be hours, days, months, years but today we would have a winner. Even if the alliance of maverick had a plan The cloudlands had electroshield who had told them everything...while they attempted the night strike, electro had seen them and had stopped them dead in their tracks, their plan had failed and now everyone was awake, but the still had a plan, and today, they could execute it..and electro. You see Electroshield stayed nearby and would be the first line of defense, should they get passed him, he would meet with cloud to inform the army they’re coming..and has Electroshield perched in a nearby tree, guns, knives and all, he was prepared, but if they could kill him, it would take a month for him to respawn, meaning if they could kill him they would win… and as they made their way to the Cloudlands, that’s what the planned to do as Electro jumped down from a tree he had shot astafan twice and stabbed him once, then it was him versus maverick, he knew his plan and he was faster...and as electro fought his way to victory he had taken a slice, though it wasn’t fatal, he knew he had to warn cloud and that’s what he did, as he alerted clouds army and bandaged himself up he states he only killed them once and they were still coming and proposed a counter strike. With clouds approval, the Cloudlands army had began dashing towards the enemies own base and force them to surrender. But the war wasn’t over yet. Astafan began burning as many opponents he could, though with their shields it was progressively getting more difficult to take them all out. With this in mind Electroshield would sneak up behind and stab astafan in the back and then went to maverick as he told cloud to set up tnt
Maverick: ELECTRO WHY?!
Electro: you know what you did you know what you’ve done
Maverick: listen, the reason I had to stop cloud is because she elected herself!
Electro: ITS HER LAND!
Maverick: YOU’RE A MERCENARY YOU’RE NOT GETTING ANYTHING OUT OF THIS!
Electro: it doesn’t matter! You literally burned my house, astafan burned my home! And then asked me to supply you! After what you did!
Maverick: WE WERE FRIENDS YOU BETRAYED US!
*exploisives start going off*
Electro: yknow what..i dont care maverick..this is the end for you *aims gun*
Electro: sorry mav...maybe you should’ve taken no *fires*
As explosives go off every moment maverick knew they had lost, with cloud’s army causing maverick and astafan to be pushed back they both only had a single life left while cloud and electro hadn’t lost a single life...with no choice but to end the war they surrendered and given all the remaining weapons they had...but electro wasn’t done, he suggested that maverick makes a choice, kill his friend or himself...however cloud said that they had done enough and that the war for the Cloudlands was over
Electroshield slightly unsatisfied had decided to leave before the party but promised to return
