Phoenicks, the last of the four TWR moderators to remain in the War Zone, left while leaving a trace of ash upon being 'lynched'.
The remaining four Resistance members - parma, Flame_, hurristat, and Iteru – had confusion on their faces. But they caught on. Phoenicks’ being lynched, their fake identities disappeared and revealed their true faces. They felt safe to see that they were among teammates.
...but it wasn't time to celebrate. The ground suddenly started to quake.
“Whoa, what the?”
“Is this another prank of those mods?”
“Fuck, are they THAT upset to lose? I thought they’d be sportive, given that they are mods of a game-related place-”
“YOU GUYS GET OUT OF THERE RIGHT NOW!”
“GET OUT NOW! THE WAR ZONE...IT’S COLLAPSING!”
Rayne wasn’t lying. The buildings of the War Zone were shaking, some in the distance were already collapsing.
The ground was shaking as well. For the four remaining Resistance fighters, it was getting harder to stand upright on the ground.
“Are you guys doing this?”
*LOUD BANGING NOISE (a fist hitting the screen)*
“Why in the world would we get rid of our OWN GAME SYSTEM?!?!?!” (Phoenicks)
Suddenly the four realized...they couldn’t LEAVE the War Zone.
“Ugh! What happened to our lasers? Don’t they have a function to warp us back to real world?”
“AUGH! Are we going to be trapped in this place?”
Suddenly, the in front of the four survivors, Ryuutakeshi appeared.
“You guys keep causing trouble,” he said, rolling his eyes. He threw four laser guns to the survivors.
“They should work. Come on. Time to return to the reality.”
All of them disappeared at once...leaving the War Zone.
The five of them popped out of the TV screen that the mods had set up for the fight.
The four Resistance members then realized that their teammates - those who didn’t make it to the ending, but still helped behind the scenes – were all here, in the same room.
From the TV, everyone watched the War Zone crumble. After a minute, the screen started showing blizzards.
parma glared at the four mods.
“Wow, I didn’t expect you to have a backup plan in case you lost.”
Mintaka returned the glare; being the first to leave the War Zone had upset her enough, much less being insulted.
“If we wanted to get rid of you by crashing the War Zone system, we would have done it a long time ago,” said Mintaka, while glaring.
Before parma could say more, Hellion spoke up.
“Cut it out. It’s not their doing, apparently,” said Hellion.
Mijzelffan threw a crumpled piece of paper at Iteru, who caught it.
“...all I can say about this, it’s...shit,” said Mijzelffan.
hurristat, parma, Iteru, and Flame_ read the paper...and their eyes all widened.
“We fought with them (four of TWR mods) to unban ourselves...and NOW, it turns to this?”
“Who dares to get rid of The War Room?!”
The members of Resistance, as well as the four mods, rolled their eyes.
“Is there any way to recover it? If you were able to create a reality space, you’ve bound to have that data left somewhere,” asked Iteru.
“We tried, but the data is stolen altogether. It’s simply gone.” Rayne replied.
“We searched for the data everywhere, but…none of us could even find a trace of it. Both the mods and us Resistance members,” Mijzelffan added.
The paper was passed to Phoenicks, who did not have a chance to read the paper since his return from the War Zone.
“This is bullshit. We wasted our time, just to give this third party an opening to get rid of the War Room,” said Flame_.
“...fuck, I think I know who that third party is.”
Phoenicks was frowning, while looking at the paper.
“The tone in the writing is very familiar. If I’m not mistaken...”
“Well, let’s hear it. Who?”
“…the wording, it seems like the typical, skeptical style (?)…of us Real World moderators…”
Upon hearing the name mentioned...the War Room mods and Resistance knew that this was going to be another fight. Another fight, bigger scale...with the War Room at stake.
...and, they needed all the firepower they could get.
“Our rematch – if we ever want it later – can wait. What’s the point of fighting when we don’t even have the War Room to fight in?”
“They’re right. Our victory in the War Zone is pointless without the War Room.”
“We’ll need more teammates. Time to hold a recruiting drive for the Resistance.”
“As well as giving some of you more powers. We wouldn’t mind granting you more power in reality spaces, if that helps any chances,” said Rayne.
“Ooooh, does that mean you’ll give at least some of us more powers?” asked parma.
“That would REALLY be reassuring, that you won’t backstab us.” Hellion said.
“Fine, besides, with a bigger team to fight the enemy with, it’ll help if we have more ‘leaders’,” said Ryuutakeshi.
Come on, I need an explanation for having three more mods in the section now XD
"It shouldn't take long to find where our enemies are hiding, we'll find them," said Mintaka.
“And some of us could really help new powers. Mine in the War Zone sucked,” said Mijzelffan.
