History

Here's the thread, yo.

And here's the second one!

Great googly moogly there's a third one!


La Révolution was started June 11th, 2007 by inuyashafan213 as the second coming of the AD Fanfic. The first AD Fanfic was The Cilliad, which was written by inufan213 and contained 73 chapters across many arcs. For La Révolution, inufan213 decided that the AD regulars would write the continuations of the story. This happened since inufan213 just didn't have the time to continue the story and the AD regulars wanted it their way... though they weren't even in Burger King...

After a four-year hiatus during which AD kind of developed ADD and stopped caring about writing or reading fanfic chapters, Cille decided to resurrect LaRev and give it the proper ending it always deserved. Of course she still gets ADDish about writing, so the full ending might take a while, but at least there's stuff happening.

The Website

The website for La Révolution was launched June 29th, 2007. HeeroYuy135 gets the credit for the idea of the website, and mgangel1124 gets the credit for the creation of the website.

Here's the website, yo.

The Plot

The story takes place in Actonia in the capital city of Orly. There's a revolution going on and stuff.

La Révolution centers around the lives of the citizens governed by a tyranical Head Governor named Michelle Ozzal and the revolution that is planned to bring justice back to all of Actonia and liberate it from Ozzal's control.

Organizations

The Blacken Syndicate A revolutionary group created by Landon Blaken after his parents were killed by the Actionia military for protesting against Ozzal's unjust laws. The Syndicate consists of a menagerie of people (mainly AD board members) who share a similar hatred for Ozzal and the corrupt Actionia government. It is assumed that their eventual goal is the overthrow of Ozzal and the creation of a fairer government. Now, if only they could get their act together. Oh, and according to a chapter by mgangel, they disguise themselves in Mardi Gras outfits, but this has yet to actually happen in a chapter....
Actonia Military Actonia's military is loyal to Ozzal, who rose to power through its ranks.
The Echelon A secret organization created by Ozzal to serve as a sort of special ops/secret police. They receive their orders from Ozzal's advisor Goda and are led by Zeus and Kay El. Echelon agents tend to either work by themselves, in pairs, or with a contingent of Actionia soldiers. Ozzal's hold over the Echelon has grown more tenuous, especially since Goda has revealed himself as a double agent working for the Order of Iron. The group is essentially wiped out after taking heavy casualties and then being disbanded by Ozzal.
The Order of Glass The obligatory mysterious third organization. Whereas the Syndicate are technically the good guys, and the Echelon/Actionia government are the bad guys, the Order is meant to be the group that exists between the two, with questionable motives and methods of operation. "Ends justify the means" kind of people. Fortunately, they don't seem to like Ozzal all that much, and many of the members operating in Actionia are sympathetic to the Syndicate's cause. Eventually the escalating crisis leads the group to officially join forces with the Syndicate. Their sole source of identification are their glass crosses, which they wear around their necks.
The Order of Iron The rival organization of the Order of Glass. They want to take over the world, and are generally eeeevil.
The Cool Mexicanos A shady organization led by Da Sombras and Landon Blaken to serve their shady ends, which include finding the secret to eternal life. They have a zeppelin and are eeeeeeevil.
Orly Police The Orly police force is technically under Ozzal's jurisdiction... but that doesn't stop them from doing their own investigations.
The Enigma Eight Also known as the Flying Smiley Indifferents. A group of mercenaries wanted by practically every nation across the globe. Its sole goal is the advancement of power and prestige of its individual members. They are recruited by Ozzal to take care of the more troublesome citizens of Actonia.
The GAR Street Bar Regulars The patrons of a popular bar, known for its frequent fights and general overwhelming aura of manliness. They join up with the Syndicate after a rousing speech given by Kamina.

Locations

Location Reference Description
Actonia Action Discussion folder Actonia serves as the country of the main setting so far in "La Revolution." Its capital city (and the only major city left in the country since Ozzal came to power) is Orly. The areas of the country outside of Orly are known as Lower Actonia. (Some authors have erroneously used Lower Actonia to refer to the non-downtown parts of Orly.)
Comedia Comedy Discussion folder It is the sister nation of Actonia, as well as the former home of Luna Monegossde. However, there are hints of a rivalry between the two nations, and some in each country would like to see them break their ties. The capital city is Croffordson, formerly known as Comlaeha.
Comdot Estate as.com folder The "White House" of Actonia; the residence of the Head Governor of Actonia. A large and imposing building in the center of Orly. It contains a prison where particularly dangerous political prisoners are held.
Trunks' Pub and Dance Dance Revolution Hut Trunks' series of Watching the Anime Block Experiment threads Meeting place of the revolutionary group. Closed many times due to fire safety violations. Is destroyed when the Echelon goes all medieval on Syndicate hangouts.
Babblstan Babbling folder A country that borders Actonia. Despite their lack of technology, the citizens are very patriotic. The future Head Governor Ozzal began a war with Babblstan 13 years ago as a military commander. This is also where the freelance snipers, Heero and Riza, lived.
Gunsmoke Inc. Gunsmoke Inc. threads Meeting place of the seemingly smaller Syndicate branch. Most of whom turned out to be members of the Order of Glass. The bar was pretty well gutted during the mass arrests of Syndicate members.
Rantonia Rants folder Rantonia is a nation currently at war with Actonia. It is nearing defeat, but not as quickly as Ozzal would like. Homeland of Shipon Kaaba. Has large amounts of radiation. The capital city is Zomg.

Religion

  • "JESUS OF NAZARETH!!" = An exclamation made by Ozzal while waiting for taquitos. More than likely a reference to the Jesus in the Christian Bible.

Inufan213's Unglorified Departure

I didn't really say good-bye without explaining myself. I just grew so stressed with the boards in relation to my personal life; I didn't realize that I was doing so bad with my studies last year, and I can partly attribute the cause of my poor marks and my inability to focus to nothing other than the ASMB. This is my final year of high school, and I don't want to get f'ed up right at the end of my run. A year of straight A's is all I want, and I can't have any distractions. :(

So, since you guys were probably my best friends, I feel bad having left you so soon, I was just having a nervous breakdown and needed to end it. I know you guys will grow to forget I existed eventually, but I still know you guys are great people. You made my experience on the boards worthwile and, actually, I learned so many valuable things from you guys.

It was great run, you guys.
