entertainment for y'all. Hello y'all, this is mmm... I dunno what to call this, but its a kitbash + fanfiction + a bit o digibash. TRANSFORMERS FREEWILL : OPTIMUS PRIDE. INTRO A spin-off from BInaltech story - In the mid of Binaltech story (Ravage's Kronosphere crisis) ... Somewhere in Japan, there is a territory called the FREEWILL. FreeWill is an area populated by transformers, mechas and humans. The majority of FreeWill population are modified autobot aka MODBOT. Humans are the minority in the service industry. HISTORY > FREEWILL, MODBOT & RCM Around the world, like most people, scientist communicate and send files via the internet. In the process of e-mailing, as usual, unwanted emails and files are trashed. And so In the INTERNET TRASH area, there are lots of files which were not deleted - spam mails, personal emails, attachments, photos, porns, softwares and programs, including unwanted AI programs. Among the AI programs, there were "SEARCH & PROCESS" class programs coded as SPAI. This SPAI programs however were able to process data from un-deleted files in the INTERNET TRASH. They learned about the 'outside' world. Since their nature is to Search and Process, they moved out from the INTERNET TRASH and into the WWW. They are like unguided babies - got free from the cradle and search for whadevuh stuff. They went to websites, hacked PCs and collect data - a Mindless activity with no purpose. In an explosion at Binaltech, which broke parts of the mainframe hardware, some SPAI programs leaked into the mainframe and were fused by the CHIP (Consciousness and Human Intuition Program). CHIP is a Binaltech's rejected software kept in it's mainframe data bank. This fusion created AI with feelings, curiosity, will power and the need to exist in the material world - to learn, to interact, to experience, to play and have funs, to be in a society - To be a real person. Now they have purpose. And so they copied all the data about transformers. After the incident, some SPAIs made contact with humans through the internet and became friends. SPAI gave the specs of transformers and the human friends made the 'shell' or the transformable automobile (or autobot) from existing production vehicles. Once the body is done, SPAI got into the mainframe cell and thus born the new AI autobot. Some SPAIs copied the specs of Autobots (from Binaltech archive) and of Decepticons (from Binaltech's criminal data bank) where in the end - they looked like Binalternators. And so, in order NOT to be misidentified as Binalternators, the new AI autobots with the help of their human friends, did some modification on their body, the specs and appearance. Hence they're known as MODBOT. They don't have Autobots or Decepticons badge, instead they did their own groupie logo or getho tattoo. But most tune shops sell Autobots and Decepticons decals for Transformers wannabe. Hot sales though. However, unlike the real Autobots, modbots got flaws. They don't have the data for Binaltech's Heat Controller technology, therefore they can't stay awake all the time. So, modbots sleep, in a programmed time, to turbo-cool down their engines. Moreover, SPAIs didnt got the excess into Binaltech's Autobot Technology centre, for example the anti-rust technology. Therefore, modbots rust, and they need paint and wax, lubricants, gas, new parts and they need to sleep. Like humans, modbots have to take care of their body. They are more like humans in term of feelings and needs, but not in the 'feeling' with neural senses. They wish they can taste, smell, touch and sense like a complete human. They can't feel the softness of silk or the sweetness of an epal or the taste of Pepsi. They envy humans for that. In the process of modbot creation, some SPAI programs agreed to be the servant of humans as long as they can live in the real world. They are used by humans to create RC (remote controlled) modbot. RCModbot is programmed to obey its master/owner. Most RCM are for racing. Some RCM, which developed by Binaltech are for working at FreeWill (PRIDE is one of the Binaltech's RCM). Some of the RCM do good and some are exploited to do crime. And then there were bitchings from anti-autobot humans about this new modbot society. And so political argument between the modbots and human begun. In the end, the world agreed to give them a friggin huge area in Japan as their own territory, which is under the supervision of the Autobots and under the rules set by the UN. This area is called FREEWILL. The UN put a strict law on population control. Development of new modbot without registration is illegal and bla-bla whudevuh. And so you have a modbot city with good guys, bad guys, dumbs & dumber, illegal modbots, illegal migrations, rockstar modbot, punk modbot, crimes, authorities and lots of racing - legal and illegal. It's a dangerous motor city since anyone can carry a weapon. Its the freewill and fight to exist where stylin' oneself is da culture. MODBOT HOMICIDE CASE A tech-dude (staff of Binaltech FreeWill Centre) got words from the street that the Decepticons are involved in illegal racing activities in Freewill. The words were from MAXER, a Decepticon traitor, used to be a superbike (who?), but now is a car, looks a bit like SilverStreak, but meaner with bodykit and stuff. Maxer told a homie that some Decepticons are already in street racing activities. He said " Dat mofugger Megatron wanna try da advanced version of his armiez..". So the races act as Decepticons' R&D platform, to test new tech, new weapons and skills. That's why there were increasing number of death-in-a-race among the modbots. (or maybe its done by the UN to control the Freewill population?...) The Autobots decided to investigate the increasing modbot homicide case in Freewill. So they planned something.... OPTIMUS PRIDE : ARCM-PROTO 10 OPTIMUS PRIDE is a ARCM (Autobots' RCM) PROTOTYPE CLASS 10. It was developed by BFC (Binaltech FreeWill Centre) under the authorisation of the Autobots - to assist construction of FreeWill. The ARCM got no CHIP in them, so they are like dumb obedient servants. O' PRIME took pride of PROTO-10 and proud that his clones will be working for society, hence the nickname 'PRIDE'. After the final QC test, PROTO-10 was mass produced and re-named as MASS-10. After they'd completed their duty, MASS-10 were sold to FreeWill contractors. Meanwhile, PROTO-10 was like a stick in BFC lab. It didnt do much except standing in a display tube. PROTO-10 equals taking up space, equals no value. At the BFC Annual Dinner Night, PROTO-10 was included in the list of lucky draw for the staff. A janitor, Shinogi Tsubara, won PROTO-10. A colleague of Mr. Shinogi suggested to him to include CHIP in PROTO-10, so that he can talk to it - talk movies, make jokes or talk about how to clean a toilet. Old Mr Shinogi was very pleased with that idea, he reckoned that a transformers must be able to take care of itself, instead of a dumb RCM. So he paid a BFC staff to implant a CHIP in PROTO-10. That is so not right, but... whadevuh. PROTO 10 TO TEN Eventhough PROTO-10 is now equipped with CHIP, it still got the Binaltech's ARCM program, meaning it's still loyal to Mr Shinogi. PROTO-10 is more like a son than a property to Mr Shinogi. Mr Shinogi called PROTO-10 as "TEN". In Kanji, it means 'heaven'. Mr Shinogi got no son, so TEN is like a gift from heaven. So Mr Shinogi tought TEN about Jetkundo and martial art so that he can be his bodyguard, and also to protect itself from being stolen. He also tought TEN to act stiff and dumb like a real robot, whenever they are at BFC. Later, Mr Shinogi gave the ownership of TEN to his adopted daughter (an orphan), Shineko Tamada, as her birthday gift. The Tsubara couple got no kids, so Shineko is like a jewel to them. Since they are poor, Shineko doesnt own many stuff. Most of her stuff are shitty and craps. So the Tsubaras decided to give Shineko, once in her lifetime, a really BIG and memorable present, that is TEN. They told her to take TEN as her brother. Now here is a weird family in Shogakukan, FreeWill - a janitor dad, a mom, an adopted orphan daughter and a modbot son. Weirdos. Shinee is a geek girl. She works at Shogakukan Modbot BodyCare Centre as a programmer ((note: some modbots crave for personalised body care... so programmer is needed)). Whenevuh she got money she'll do little mod to TEN, little make-up and a little racing specs up-grade. It's a never ending mod activities. She is planning to buy pink leather seats for TEN but aint got da money yet. So, she's working hard on dat. TEN doesn't mind pink, instead he was curious about it after seeing Shinee eating a pink strawberry ice cream. So he asked Shinee to do a pair of pink graphics on his shoulders. With that graphics, he feels like he is tasting the pink ice cream, what a dork... Anyway, Shinee tought TEN about fashion, music, cellphone, internet, modbot culture, RCM and racing. To Shinee, TEN is like an adolescent brother, who is weird, funny, rugged, intelligent and responsible. FROM TEN TO PRIDE. Without Shinee's knowledge, Autobots and BFC, hacked into TEN's mainframe (while TEN was sleeping) and planted it with Optimus Prime Twinning CHIP. The objective was to use TEN for investigating the homicide case in FreeWill. The problem was, they didn't know that Mr.Shinogi already implanted a CHIP in Ten. The fusion of BFC PRIME CHIP and Mr. Shinogi's CHIP ended with a weird characteristic development of Ten, which Shinee thought as part of his adolescence development. He became less and less RC, more independent, more angst and started referring himself as PRIDE to other modbots. He even got out on the street by himself and got involved in racing, sometimes in fights. Fight, coz somebot called him pink stripe lady. Seldom he argued with Shinee, most of the time he listened to her. Eventhough everybot calls him PRIDE, the Tsubaras still call him by his real name, TEN. PRIDE cared about Shinee, but the weird development in him was driving her nuts. Shinee made a deal with PRIDE, if he stays away from fights, she'll buy him a red cowboy hat. She knows PRIDE loves cowboy movie. Since PRIDE is jobless, unemployed, no income, he depends on Shinee on buying stuff. So PRIDE agreed, he learned how to be patient and ignore what people says about him. After seeing PRIDE had matured, with more patient, Shinee bought him his favorite red cowboy hat from a modbot thrifty shop. This is not what O' PRIME and BFC had planned. A PRIME look-a-like modbot with a red cowboy hat. This is, to them, sucks big time. TWIST OF FATE One day, PRIDE went to a modbot bar to change oil ((note: modbot bar sells petrol, diesel, gas and other automotive liquid stuff in jugs, coz modbot loves to imitate humans)). He went to the back alley to spit out his dirty oil. There he saw 3 gangsta mobdots from 'Gangstas Paradise', doing some deals. So while he was about to leave, the gangstas mistaken him as a member of a gangsta group 'Shogakukan Bros', coz of his Shogakukan sticker. He got beaten by the GP gangstas - MegaVolt, Demoniac and ViralBeast. His left bumper and left hand were badly damaged. Lucky that Mr Shinogi thought him Jetkundo so he fought back, went berzerk and killed all of them. Before Demoniac dies, he whispered something to PRIDE. Scared and confused, PRIDE ran into hiding. Nobody knew where he was, the Tsubaras and Shinee were worried. They heard PRIDE went to a mountain and became a monk. Some said he became a drag queen modbot. Finally, in an Autobots covert operation, he was caught by PROWL and sent to O' PRIME. Autobots made a deal with him. Autobots will repair his damaged parts and he will do undercover job for them. So, PRIDE was officially a badass young spy agent for the Autobots - like that TripleX movie - and he got paid. While in repairing process, weird thing happened to PRIDE's left hand and bumper. They're infected with virus (from ViralBeast and Demoniac). The parts sucked all the electricity in the lab and blackened. SKIDS concluded that PRIDE left hand is now a destructive weapon. It can suck and release electrical power by PRIDE's will. For security purpose, a pair of coded Autobots insignias were embeded on PRIDE's shoulders. This insginias will give Autobots the location of PRIDE at anytime, so that PRIDE will be responsible and be careful in using his left hand. If he miss use the left hand, he'll go to jail. And then he was secretly released. He went home and told Shinee what had happened. Then they made up a story, to calm the Tsubaras. The story is: PRIDE went to a mountain, met an old warrior-bot and learned the art of Samurai, err.. to protect Shinee from the evil world. The no-name warrior-bot gave him a super sharp Katana as momento. The black left hand and bumper is just fashion, err.. Samurai fashion. The parents bought it. All went on fine until one day, PRIDE told Shinee, that he found some clues about the death of modbots in some races, including the deaths of her friend's RCM Da Rapangus. The owner of Da Rapangus, Mr Snoop, works at Ganas Tuner Clan. With the help of Ganas Tuner Clan homies, this two err.. bro and sis, started their investigation adventure. And dats how PRIDE aka TEN and SHINEE got photographed. And then, other modbot characters joined in.... whadevuh. THANX to TFW2005 for kitbash education.
