It was a nice clear day. MAF base was in it's usual rush hour so things were pretty hectic. Although there was a minor incident of ComX-1 and Shidyk changing into a chocolate girls because of gift from Overlord-Skuld, the transformation itself was very easy to get rid of thanks to all the magitech equipment lying all over the place. At this moment most of soldiers were undergoing drills with Daimajin, a part of the crew was sitting in cafeteria chatting over coffee. The scientists were running through the corridors chasing the new breed of tg bunnies, making a lot of ruckus. ComX-1 was sitting alone in the video room watching some comedies, but he didn't look too happy.
"Hey, why so glum,chum?" asked Ego.
ComX-1 was, delicately speaking, pissed off. Everyone in the base was running around on all kind of errands and missions, and he alone didn't have anything to do.
"Ghrr, I wanna do something! This sitting around is killing me! I'm so BORED!"
"What's so wrong with sitting around and lazing off?"
"Nothing, but lazing off for this long is making me insane! What will the munchkins say about the dessert?!"
"Yeah, right, whathev... Waittamiute, what did you say?"
"I see it now! A new universe of flying pigs draws near to eclipse of the muffin! I shall be the first man on the stilts who draws a Mona Lisa with a burned stick! Come! Take the backpack full of broken glass and let's feed flowers to ducks in the vanilla pond! Zazazaza!"
"Oh sh..." Ego looked genuinely terrified "..okay,dude,whathever makes you happy..." he said as he was walking backwards slowly. At the door he bumped into Hanzoushinrei who was coming back from cafeteria.
"Hey, Ego, what's going on?"
Ego send him a "this-is-a-bad-time-for-conversation" stare. Hanzou looked into the room, and saw Grand Psycho standing in place and spouting nonsense left and right.
"The pink aligators! Running from one corner of a circle to the next! Sharp objects bluntly strike the square orb! John Peshi ate my pickle pudding, what a drag! Now I have to make a banana tequilla to calm the anger of a teddy bear!"
"Idle Idiot syndrome" answered Ego "When this guy has nothing to do over a long period of time, the pent-up energy just escapes in one moment! Spouting nonsense is just a beggining stage!"
"And what's gonna happen later?"
"Zing! Fly my spring watermelon! Let's get you a good home with lots of raisins and..." ComX-1 suddenly stopped, his head unconsciously dropped on his shoulders. He was just standing there silently.
"What's wrong with him?"
The faint giggle echoed in the room.
"How can I tell? I know the guy for ages but this..."
The giggle became steadily louder and louder.
"...he just snaps, you see, and then..."
"keh... khehehe... hahahha... Mwahahaa... KWahahaha... YAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAA!!!"
ComX-1 suddenly burst into loud and creepy laughter. After a while he started bouncng like a bullet all over the room, and finally broke a hole in the wall and flew in unknown direction.
"Uh, weren't a new Catillion base that way? He just rushed off to enemy terriotory?"
"I'm more worried about them than ComX. When he's like thet he's completely unpredictable! I say it's better their base than ours. And the worst he can do to himself is fall fom the cliff and break a couple of bones. Anyway, I heard there's a new menu in cafeteria?"
Ego went his way, but Hanzou wasn't completely convinced that their boss is safe...
At Catillion new base
"Well, I must say that our new base looks damn good! Newest defenses, steel walls and radars make this place absolutely safe and impossible to penetrate!"
Quarma was very pleased of the outcome of his new base. He was currently having a little housewarming (or basewarming?) party with the rest of Soul Sharders. Suddenly the alarm rang, suprising everyone. Some of them accidentally spilt their drinks.
"What's wrong?" asked Quarma through the micrphone.
"It's the enemy, sir! They're attacking!"
"Enemy? How many and who is leading them?"
"There's only one, and it appears to be ComX-1!"
"What?! What a joke! He's crazy if he thinks that he can penetrate our defences! Shoot him down with TG cannons ad come have a drink."
"Thank you, sir, but, uh..."
" 'But'? What does that mean?"
"Well, you see sir, he's already in the building..."
"WHAT! WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU MORONS DOING! QUICKLY! CATCH HIM BEFORE..."
Quarma didn't finish that sentence. His words drowned in a loud explosion. He looked behind him and saw a large hole in steel wall. When the smoke fell down, there wasn't anybody behind it.
"Watch out, he's propably somewhere nearby!"
"What a nice tea party you have? Nice, nice, glad I brought my muffin cannon! Nyahahaha!"
Everyone looked up where the voice was coming from. ComX-1 was sitting casually on a chandelier, swinging from time to time and eating a cake that was previously lying on a table beneath him.
"Shoot him!" yelled quarma.
In a moment the entire room was filled with tg blasts. Everyone was aiming at ComX, but he was jumping with insane speed all over the place laughing maniacally, giving some people a wedgie and throwing banana peels everywhere.
The situation gradually took a turn for worse for SoulSharders. Kid got a permanent TG wedgie. The lack of vision caused by his underpants over his eyes deprieved him of the clear viev of the enemy, so he accidentally shot SSBGuy with TG/AR blast changing him into a little goth girl. October and Rugburn tried to shoot him from front and the back, but he dodged at that moment making them send a blast in each other face. Rugburn was changed into a stone mermaid fountain and October stood there as a french maid holdind a dustpan. FallenWolf was firing like crazy at ComX, but he pulled out a mirror out of his sleeve reflecting the ray at him, thus changing him into a catgirl. The only one SoulSharder standing un-tg'd now was Quarma.
"How in the hell did you get here?" he yelled pointing a new model TG gun at the cause of this whole mess.
"I flew! Like a bird with a concrete boots underwater! Driving the yellow submarine I emerged from the sea of earth and painted the sky yellow! Jump! Bounce!POGO POGO POGO POGO POGO!"
"...The what?" Quarma, as the rest of SSC, was clearly confused.
"Cowabunga! Let the marbles spill the secret of beeing round and smooth! I will use the filling paper to eradicate the red carpet! IMMA FIRIN MAH LAZOR!1!!!1!"
Saying this ComX send a large blast of energy out of his mouth towards Quarma, creating a new hole in the wall and sending Quarma into the land of Teletubbies.
"Swan, swan! Nice to hang with you ladies but I need to polish the icecream. Cya and goodbye!"
A big drill suddenly popped out of his sleeve and started boring into the floor. Soon ComX dissapeared underground.
At Mad Atom federation base, 3 hours later
"Aaah, all that tension went away! What a nice feeling!"
Apparently ComX-1 was back to his old and slightly-insane self. He was sitting now with the rest of the MAF team in the cafeteria and takling about the events that unfolded at the SSC base.
"Man, I owe my sanity to you. A couple more hours and I surely would go bananas!"
Leila didn't hide her gratitude. Apparently when escaping ComX bored into underground room where Leila was forced to watch Disaster Movie on infinite loop. When he crashed into the tv Leila snapped out of the brain-damaging state and used her fourth-wall-breaking powers to get them safely into MAF base.
"By the way, what is that thing you're playing with for the past hour?" asked Leila.
"Oh, this? It' the new and upgraded version of Twilight Tear. Our chief developer said that it'll remove even most persistent transformation or block. You know what? Let's give it a try."
He turned a small crystal towards Leila, and a small beam of light shoot out from it's tip. The light engulfed her, and dissapeared after a while.
"Well nice, but I'm still myself. How do we know this thing works?"
"Easily!" grinned ComX and shoot her with a TG gun that he had in his sleeve.
"Hey! Watch where you point that thing!"
However Leila was still her girly self.
"Damn! Doesn't work. The curse must be too strong..."
"Well, at least our scientists have invented a stronger cure for transformations. Can't say the same thing abut those SSC guys, though. They won't be inventing anything for some time." said Shidyk
"Hahaha! I love that stunt you pulled! SSC's "impenetrable" base looks now like a chunk of swiss cheese!" said TGDrode.
"Talking about cheese, I'm hungry from all this rampaging. Hey, Vir, what is the special today?"
Vir, the assistant cook, was actually the small grey alien that lived with ComX-1 and Ego.
"Chef says the special today is 'Really F***ing Hot Chilli', 'Damn Good Chowder' and 'Ass Kicking Soup'"
"Gimme evrything you have there! I feel voracious!"
The rest of the evening MAF spend on partying and playng games, then they went to sleep, getting ready for another hard day of TG War...
