ur in for it

<!-- more -->

ok so this is all in Outer Space Future

basically theres liek an academy orw/e that prepares ppl to become pilots and crew and everythign for The Fleet

and how the mechs work is like. theres a pilot whos actually in the mech flying around and all, and theyre teamed up w a partner whos actually located back on the base who works as like. air traffic control/navigation/etc. theyre able to remotely monitor everything and communicate directly with their pilot partner. theyre called “control”

and there are little fleets of mechs called units, and they consist of 2-5 pilot/control teams and a commander

so jordan and alex have been bff since forever and they go into the mech academy determined to be a pilot/control team. so this au starts like right as theyre graduating and theyre getting assigned to their pilot/control teams and jordan has graduated p high in jer class so feys p proud of jerself abt it

sucks 4 jord tho bc instead of getting paired w alex, fey gets paired w harrison, whos been a pilot for a couple of years now, and hes p fuckin great at it but hes a little bit (a lot) reckless and his control kalle has been awol for some months. so the Higher Ups are like “look ur good at this jordy. we need someone like u to keep this guy in line” and jords like “i. well”

and alex gets paired up with somebody else i havent decided who yet

so jordan is working as control for Pilot Harrison in Mech Unit Jenny Haniver, which is one of the bigger and better units in town. other than the 2 of them it consists of:

  • greg (control) & yoshi (pilot)
  • ronnie (control) & reese (pilot)
  • brodie (control) & taylor (pilot)
  • and Commander Faraji

and jords like “well i mean like. im honored but. i miss my bff” but fey kind of adjusts to it and gets to know harrison and finds they actually work rly well as a team and eventually they get flirty and all of that good stuff

meanwhile here are some of the other units that are active at the beginning of the thing:

  • unit algol: commander matt, pilots patrick & tweety, and controls scott & wyatt
  • unit hummingbird: commander xavier, pilots henry, steve, & ian, controls barry, coco, & uriah
  • unit emerald: commander lindsay, pilots amery & caleb, controls evan & pablo
  • unit btlxr: commander nieves (w her assistant/commander-in-training/baby cousin omar), pilots araceli, thekla, eidel, & rory, controls qadira, tierney, varya, & vito

and then theres also a maintenance crew in the same like. control room base w/e as the controls that just kind of monitors how the mechs are doing, whether any machinery is going awry or how theyre doing on fuel and etc. ppl like wilhelmina, felice, devon, soren, ximon, theyre in maintenance

so like. there are 3 main fleets that any given unit can be a part of. all the units ive listed are in the defense fleet. theres also the recon fleet and the scout fleet. scout fleet goes and looks for like. new locations where ppl can settle or where the military can build new bases. recon fleet runs recon missions to outposts and/or allies. defense fleet does the actual fighting

but its all extremely colonialist??? like the location scouting is basically “see what looks good and take it” and a lot of the ppl the defense fleet fights against are natives that the nation/military has displaced in the past

so one day the defense fleet is escorting some of the scout fleet to this planet that hasnt been taken over yet when theres this big huge skirmish. a lot of the controls, incl. jordan, ronnie, brodie, barry, wyatt, and qadira lose contact with their pilots. so until harrison, reese, taylor, henry, tweety, and araceli can be found, theres a lot of rearranging that goes down that can basically be likened to the bands switching up and all of that good stuff

and jordan by now is super distraught bc feys realizing like “oh crap. i knew harrison was hot but i think im actually in love with him??? and now i have no idea where he is????” and Its Bad

so some of the other pilots come back w news and theyre like “well we saw a couple of the missing pilots’ mechs seem like they were trying to land on the nearby planet” but since contact hasnt been set up on that planet yet and shits in disarray in the defense fleet everybodys like “well we need to just. chill for a hot minute and get ourselves back in order, and then we’ll send somebody down to see whats up”

meanwhile the 6 missing pilots have landed on that planet and theyre like well shit. trying to fix their mechs which are out of fuel and banged up pretty bad. and they make contact w this little village which is like. imagine landing in bumfuck, siberia, when u need to get to washington DC. theyre a long ways away, physically and otherwise. so they make friends w some ofthe ppl in the village (leighton and james and some other gsa Classics) and james does his best to figure out whats going on with this alien technology but liek what are u going to do honestly so they have to try to figure out a way to road trip it to The Citadel to seek counsel with Prince Everley and whatnot

back at the base some of the other pilots return a little bit later and they have some POWs (oliver and brian) and in the midst of all this chaos and whatnot jordan gets to touch base w alex again and theyre wondering whether they can be a pilot/control pair like they always wanted to be but alex is like “idk shits so weird like. why are they taking so long to find the other pilots, cant they send the scouts to get em” and blah blah and jordans like “ok ur right something isnt right” so fey sneaks in to see the POWs and oliver and brian are like “u realize yall took over our entire planet right” and jordan begins Questioning Feys Purpose and all of that kind of thing

theres a revolution eventually. a lot of explosions. some leighton & tweety bonding

this was really long and ended abruptly whoops
