THE CITY OF MANCHENG
The sound of gunfire was loud in Mancheng, provincial capital of Beizhou, and flames raged in much of the city. 40,000 Fascists have revolted in the city, but are having a challenge taking the city due to the presence of 50,000 Imperial Army soldiers that happened to be stationed within the city. "Kill the soldiers, spare none of them! Gather all citizens found and get them to the City Square!" The Fascist general shouted.
Meanwhile, the Feng general also shouted to his army: "Defend Mancheng and it's people! We cannot let another city fall into Fascist hands!" Smoke hung over the city, billowing from the many fires in great clouds. The palace of Beizhou province's governor, Tingxue Palace (Palace of the Sound of Falling Snow), was on fire. It's famous thirteen story pagoda, the Tingxue Pagoda, was teetering as it's foundation was consumed by hungry flames. The thick snow was stained with blood. “The General, the General is dead!” someone shouted in anguish. The Imperial Soldiers turned in alarm, but it was the Fascist General that lay, a gun wound to his neck and several more on his chest. With the death of their General, the Fascist force quickly imploded. Their ranks scattered and were each killed off. Soon, two thousand Fascist survivors fled through the Southern Gates of the city while the defenders shouted and roared in triumph.
A pigeon flew past the ruins of the Western Gate of Taijing, a small roll of paper tied to it’s legs. Feng Dynasty resorted to using the old way of using birds to send messages since electricity was cut off from Taijing city. It is a practice three thousand years old, but still very useful.
The bird soared above battling fascists and defenders, past flames raging in some parts of the three outer rings of the city. The Fascists have breached the outermost seventh wall and sixth, but were having a hard time passing the fourth. Due to the higher concentration of soldiers from their native land, Feng Dynasty as well as foreign friends of Peyterkia, North Electrica, and Of Denmarkia. The bird soared above the Gates of the Hejing Palace and above proud, yellow roofed halls glinting in the sun, above large squares will the common people moved about, dreading what might come to pass. It descended upon a beautiful hall, nestled within Sakura Trees in full bloom and landed on an open windowsill, where the Emperor noticed it. Quickly, he took the scroll, unrolled and read it.
“Fascists have rioted in Mancheng, but for the first time failed in their campaign, the city remains ours”
He smiled, and called for Servant Wu. “Spread the word, the Fascists have suffered their first defeat. Mancheng remains Feng’s!”
“Yes your highness!”
And so the Servant went, instructing the messengers to spread the message. In every person that heard it, their faces brightened with joy, for finally they can see sliver hope in the dark.
AT THE BATTLE
The message was spread to the brave soldiers battling in the base of the fifth wall. Hope brightened their faces and they cheered as one. They began to fight with renewed vigour and strength. Finally, the Fascists were forced to move back. Inch by inch.
As election day draws near both the reformist and the dictatorship are fighting for the votes of all its people. Gilead, the man fighting to keep the SC as it has always been went up in the polls when he criticized the New England Confederacy government for terrorist activities against the SC people and the world. "Should I win this election, they will pay for their crimes, just like our former Supreme Leader committed his life to." Even reformist candidate Naballa was critical of the NEC in their role during the war.
Behind Enemy Lines
Epsilon Squad managed to get behind the facist line, taking out their commanders and killing many of them, trying to cause chaos in their territory, meanwhile Beta Team had reached the outermost wall and was preceding to capture it, at least as much as they could, meanwhile their vehochles entered thrpigh and was driving full force to fight the facist.
The soldiers of Feng Dynasty, Of Denmarkia, Peyterkia, and North Electrica, with a new spark began to push back the enemy. Troopers and storm troopers pushed forward, running through the city, and taking out any facist, Juggernauts stomped forward, fireing their mini guns and LMG's although some where hit in the eye pieces by mpre trained facist, they all kept moving forward.
In North Electrica
Reinforcements have all been movilized, even some more has been gathered for "just in case", but they all was put on some military transpprts and naval ships, which included: 1 Dreadnaught, 2 Aircraft Carriers, 5 Battleships, 10 Cruisers, 20 Destroyers, 30 Frigates/Corvettes.
In Feng Dynasty Territory
Once the 1st Battilon was done mopping up the facist forces in Donghai, they set out to find the Facist HQ. With the help pf the Puma scout regiments and the carrying capacity of the Koala's, they managed to quickly move across the lands of the Feng Dynasty.
As Kaiser Omega is currently spearheading a battle, he will not be able to speak of this, however, Jeffery Callahan, our minister of defense would like to say- (Cut off by Jeffery entering the chat) "Those "Terrorist attacks" were entirely justified! The nuclear launching against the New England Confederacy by Soust Calican forces should be the focus of our anger in this brutal conflict! TWO of our cities were bathed in nuclear hellfire, and you wished to bring that fire and fury against the peace-loving people of the NEC?! The sheer amount of hypocriticism that can be taken away from such a painful comment makes me GAG! Noone should suffer through such attempted pain that SC tried to inflict against the NEC!" (He signs off and leaves a dazed reporter lying on the floor).

Preparations for the Boston Cultural Fair Begin
“With the announcement of the Cultural Fair, Bostonians have been in a flurry of excitement. The mangled mess of asphalt that is affectionately known as “roads” have been closed around the infamous Boston Common. Hired police officers patrol around the premises, stopping any Vendors’ multicolored tents rise from the green grass, as Puritans prepare their homemade goods for sale. Bands huddle in various gazebos, practicing their performances. Inside the ancient Capitol Building, politicians scurry about, rearranging furniture for the anticipated Tea Party, and preparing the safe transport of the welcomed guests.”
President Daphne barges into the office of her vice president Velma, adorning her staple purple tracksuit. She spits her gum at Velma and says
‘We’ve got a transmission from Jean Spears, they need tags on that Ashley O girl’.
Velma peels the gum off of her forehead and tosses it aside. She adjusts her glasses and turns to her computer.
‘Found her. Figures, she’d end up in Philadelphia’
She sends a telegram informing Jean, and another informing the Haimian forces, reading: Ashley O in Philadelphia in the Haimian Mountains’
"THAT RAT RAN OFF TO HAIMIA, TO HAIMIA" Jean rages through the capital castle and into the streets, red like Beyonce when she found out her child was stolen
"MOTHERFACKING TAXI I AM YOUR MOTHERFECKING DICKTATER"
Charli XCX and SOPHIE pull up in their private taxi
"It's Charli baby, where you need to go?"
"TO THE DOCKS, CALL THE PEASANTS TO PREPARE MY PRIVATE BOAT, I AM FOCKING RAGING"
SOPHIE quickly turns on the Faceshopping boosters and blasts the trio along to the docks...
"Uuh should we follow them?" Asks a confused Freya Ridings
"Why not?" says Juicy
The Kilopean Military showed off the new Hercules Class Inter-Continental Ballistic Missile today. According to a spokesman for the Joint Chiefs, the Missile contains a Hydrogen Warhead that has a maximum yield of 1000 kt TNT. This missile is the strongest in the Nation's history. The deployment of these WMD is scheduled to take place over the next few years, as they replace the old Perseus Class ICBM.
The Hirukawa-Machi Post, Editorial.
Two nights ago I was informed of a private event by a small Polaroid of it. I can’t explain it, but the instant I saw the forge I knew I had to go. I began to walk home, but I couldn’t, there was a gnawing sense in my brain. I went to the location written to meet a crowd with a similar affliction. I met the editor of the paper who agreed to publish this work, we waited for the sun to set, hours passed and more came. The sky grew dark and a robed figure came up and brought us down. I can’t explain what I saw, what we saw down there. Too much happened and we returned home. I thought it was over, I had visited an underground church and would forget about it in the next week. I was wrong. They never stopped. When the morning sun rose I got out of bed and saw in the corner of my eye. I saw. I see now. In the Periphery, a silver blur. Cubes, unearthly. They form to fluid, liquid life. It moves quicker than it came. It’s a short visit but it proves the mirror it proves their truth it is the truth and I can’t stop seeing I open my eyes I see it all I close my eyes I see home there is no sleep there is only sight I went again and I am going now I will return home I will return we will return we will we
we are infinite we are every
we will return
Daphne reclines her chair on the Toxic Plane, and taps the screen in front of her. Ashley O’s file appears.
‘Ugh what a wh*re’ she says, swiping it off the screen almost instantaneously.
Velma announces that they were nearing the mountains.
‘We can’t get close enough to land to catch the pink weaved rat’ she exclaimed, pulling on her hair.
‘Don’t worry, Daphne has it covered’ she says, as she whips out a remote control. Iggy Azalea emerges from a hatch in the ceiling, equipped in skydiving gear and her Louboutin high heels.
Velma stood there, stunned.
‘She’s going to reach her on the ground- she says she can walk a mile in these louboutins. However, she’ll remain here until the arrival of Jean Spears. We’ll land down here until we receive a signal’
Fancy begins playing throughout the plane.
Sophie's speedboat taxi blasts through the Philidelphia river in Haimia, going at full speed and blasting faceshopping.
"That whore is gonna pay, Juicy prepare the media slander"
"I'll photoshop her curmbstomping a baby"
The group pull up to the airport, and get out to meet the Haimian forces
President Walker has won the UFP nomination and will officially be running for his second term as President of AusValia. Walker has been in a tight race running against Councilman Ramiro who felt that the President had sold out his base. This has prompted the Walker campaign to move more towards the left, but that could have lasting effects on the general election, especially since both conservative candidates are moderate. In the ACP primary, Fitzgerald Grant has emerged as the front runner, but still doesn't have enough delegates to win the nomination.
Timothy McCabe has been identified as the man who shot and killed an unarmed minority teenager because he believed he had stolen something from a kiosk. The incident happened last night when McCabe followed the boy. When the teen discovered he was being followed, McCabe said he, "became hostile and he feared for his life, firing several times." McCabe has been charged with child endangerment and manslaughter, but during his first arraignment, McCabe pleaded not guilty to the charges. The defense is claiming McCabe truly believed he had stolen, it was dark outside, and the teen was larger, meaning McCabe did have reason to fear for his safety. The People First Union says this is a story of racism, that "the boy was out late and a minority, so he must have been up to no good."
Federal Police have released the names of the two gunmen who fired into downtown Hall last night killing three people. Alan Posponbe and Jeffery Block were killed by police when they walked into a crowd with an AR-15, a pistol, and heavy armor. While no motive has been found yet, police began to search the homes of the two men. They police found more ammunition and possible bomb making equipment. The two gunmen are friends and social media posts show that they posted regularly about their hatred for the government. Police Commissioner Whent stated, "The investigation is still ongoing. We are working quickly to bring about answers for the families of the victims."
The ACA has named astronaut Jonathan Wilson as the commander of the Skylab 6 mission. This will be Wilson’s second mission, having been on the Skylab 3, which was supposed to be the first landing on the moon, but it was canceled after an engine failure. The Skylab 6 mission is expected to be historic, where for the first time; AusValians will stay on the moon for two days, breaking the longest record of four hours by the previous two missions. Skylab 6 will also break history by having the first woman in space; astronaut Amanda Rucker an engineer with the ACA will join the crew as a navigator along with Tony Horton the Skylab’s pilot. The crew has begun training, and liftoff is scheduled for early fall.
Live broadcast from President Ostrav:
"Today I have signed a bill making our prisons the toughest in the world. We will not allow our nation to be eroded by crime. Prisoner rights will not exist any longer. To my loyal citizens, you're safety will always be my top priority. Thank you."
Reform in Soust Calica still seems like a pipe dream as Gilead has become the nations newest leader. Gilead promised to keep the name Supreme Leader and has promised to evolve the country into a superpower that cannot be bullied by the nations of the NU.
Militia Leader Naballa is asking for asylum in AusValia as he fears the government could kill him.
President Walker has convened a Security Council meeting to discuss the growing problems with the SC. The AUS will happily grant the asylum request of Naballa but have not crossed out the idea of establishing him as a leader of the country. The AUS would also like to remind the new SC government that if they ever hope to have a chance of survival in this region, they'd had best learn to get along.
"So..." said Minister of Foreign Affairs Milo Marcus over the phone...
"I cannot believe this! How dare that pathetic, mental, PIECE OF SH-" started MoD Jeffery Callahan, before Milo hangs up.
Noone really understands the hard work that comes of being Corlenia's MoFA. Every time the world seems to crumble around you, you need to suck it up, and take action.
Although this would be normal of Soust Calica due to it's imperialistic nature, this is where Corlenian involvement in Foreign affairs became serious, as they joined in on the war.
God, this was so much harder without Kaiser Omega's tender smile around, without him checking up on you every few minutes, genuinely worried about what you were going through. These were the actions he partook in with all his ministers, and that's how he's one of our most loved leaders in history.
Milo felt just inches away from hitting the flask, as the nation he was put in charge of after Kaiser Omega's "brief" trip to Kudia finds itself in another predicament, and the only thing his fellow ministers are saying is to burn down SC forces, leaving no survivors. He needed to do SOMETHING, ANYTHING to keep the peace, and show Corlenia isn't messing around anymore.
There is only one thing he can do... prepare for war.
"Admiral... Janice is it? Of the third surface fleet?" Said Milo, speaking to forces in the seas of SC.
"Yes?" replied a feminine voice over the phone.
"Put all your pilots on standby, and turn your guns to face the mainland. Under NO circumstances, aside from a deceleration of war, are you to fire. Do you understand?" Milo said in a threatening tone.
"Y-Yes. All guns to port! Direct order from the ministers!" Janice ordered to her crew aboard the battleship CNDF Nirvannah.
Mechanical whirring could be heard over the phone as the turrets pointed broadside, and pitched upwards.
"I hope you know what you're doing Milo..." Responded Janice before hanging up.
The Department of Internal Development has finished surveying the coastal lowlands of Bhayawala and created a special division of the NGLC to begin construction on various levees along the lowest areas of Bhayawala to combat flooding and any possible rise in sea levels. The project has been dubbed "Project Sea Wall" and has garnered quite a bit of controversy. Some see it as too much intervention in nature and are worried about what it will do to the Lu Territory. Despite this, it managed to pass the National Assembly and begin construction. Now, the Department of Defense is pushing to follow up the construction of these levees with their militarisation to aid it defense. Parties like the UA and MP greatly support this motion while others like the PFB feel that it is excessive. Only time will tell how it turns out.
Daphne glances out of the window, and sees the wave of Air Halseys arriving.
‘Fetch the Australian’ she exclaims. The door bursts open shortly after, and Iggy struts in. She opens the plane door, and leaps out, releasing her parachute. She crashes into a lake, and inflates her derriere as a buoyancy aid.
After a few hours, and some poor attempts at swimming, Iggy reached the shore, only to be greeted by the mythical being that is Millie B.
‘Do you know where that Ashley O girl is?’ asked Iggy, folding up her parachute.
‘Oh that manky pink weaved wh*re, I saw here a while ago climbing that mountain’
Iggy turned, only to see the highest peak in Haimia- The Billboard Hot 100 Mountain.
Fancy starts playing again
Jean looks down from her air Halsey to try and spot the pink wigged clone, but fails dismally "UGH WHERE IS SHE!!
meanwhile at home
Hello this is Aluna, and this is George and this is Alunageorge news.
We have a an urgent story, Trisha Paytas and the Westboro baptist church have been caught as the culprits of freeing Ashley O by swifties and barbz, and are reportedly heading to Haimia to try and kill Jean!
It was clear to anyone watching that the tides of the Battle for Taijing had turned. Where the fascists had once been slowly and painstakingly pushing the defenders back, now they themselves were crawling in retreat. When news of fascist defeats elsewhere reached the battle, the defenders went on the offensive with renewed vigor.
They all pushed forth at once and spilled from their battlements into the fascist lines, crashing into them like a raging river.
As the fascists fled and their officers fell, they realized something. This was no longer a retreat or a tactical withdrawal. This was a full-on rout.
For Peyterkia, however, the battle was over. They had been sent here as peacekeepers after all. They may have acted as soldiers, but if the fascists had made it to the civilians inside, it would have been a massacre of unprecedented proportions, something they couldn't let happen. Now that the fascists had no hope of breaching the city anytime soon, their job was done. For now at least. They were not equipped to go on the offensive, nor were many of them trained for it. As their allies advanced into the distance, they collapsed in the streets, exhausted from constant and ferocious fighting.
The soon-to-be-promoted Sergeant Borislavov leaned up against a wall and dropped his rifle.
"Command" he radioed, "this is Sergeant Borislavov. The enemy is in full retreat and my men are exhausted."
"Roger that Sergeant." A voice replied, "Collect casualties and get set for evac. Command out."
As the first wave of transport helicopters landed to evacuate the wounded and weary, they also released something new. Passing the not-so-green-anymore peacekeepers was the Offensive Expeditionary Division. The only ground infantry unit built for offensive warfare. They were but the appetizer, and soon heavier helicopters would arrive carrying heavier loads, such as light armor and vehicles.
The defenders of Taijing pushed the facist, and if they made it to the outward wall to escape, they was met by Beta and Epsilon Squad, all positioned on the walls, while Puma's blocked the entrance. They was ordered to surrender, does who did not charged forward but was cut down by bullets and explosives.
In Feng Dynasty Territory, Near Taijing
The rest of USNE forces has reached the Feng Dynasty, the large force entered the city to help finish the battle, meanwhile a outpost was quickly set up for the assigned commander of USNE forces there, so they can help coordinate the last battles against the Facist and end the threat once and for all.
In Feng Dynasty Territory, Location Unknown
The 1st Battilon has been going from town to city, either finding and taking out facist forces, or where liberating cities from facist control. All of this in search of the Facist HQ
In Other News!
Recently, multiple groups has entered the political scale, known as the Anti Facist Party (AFP), Facist Clan, and the return pf the Imperialist Initiative. There was an uproar for the Imperialist and Facist imprisonment, but doing so will hare their political freedoms and Civil Rights. For now they are allowed to peacefully protest and try to run for councilship, but the police are keeping a close eye on them.
