Federal Furor [T.I.D. Ep. XXI]

Posted by benanen , in The Island Dictatorship (Anim... 04 June 2012 · 409 views

I would be lying if I said it hadn't worried me, the fact that the authorities might come knocking. But I had always kept myself isolated. There was only one bus in and out of town, and most of my troubles were private issues, and even when they extended to other towns, they were usually dealt with in Vilevale itself.
So how had this happened? How had the feds found out?

It was my fault. I made a mistake. A long time ago. And it was coming back to haunt me. Kid Cat, another agent. He was my first opponent when I decided to take control of this town, and I'd quickly got rid of him.

Agent S was out to nail Vilevale's dictator once and for all. She started by asking sly questions around town.

Mott, Bob, even Marcel. It seemed all were being hounded for information.

Posted Image

When I passed by her, she spoke in strange metaphors. I was confounded. What mad tactics was she employing?

Posted Image

And then she seemed to take on a covert role. She was barely sighted over the next few days.

Posted Image

Then I discovered her torturing Bob with a tazer in the dead of night!

Posted Image

She was really letting loose! But at least she couldn't continue while I was present.

Posted Image

Newer villagers like Caroline weren't happy with what was happening.

Posted Image

Mott too, was turning against me, being complemented by Agent S.

Posted Image

But my true friends stayed loyal, and were dismayed at the lack of support I was receiving.

Posted Image

Curt wanted to take action.

Posted Image

He had resolved to take the fall for me, by confessing to my many crimes. I protested, and we argued.

Posted Image

But I just couldn't have him take the blame, so I was forced to imprison him in his house.

Posted Image

My villagers were divided. I need some uniting force to help me.
But then there was light at the end of the tunnel. Or rather, Cyrano, from Light.

Posted Image

I used the new arrival to distract and hopefully dissuaded Curt from his pursuing his outrageous plan. He had heard of Cyrano.

Posted Image

He finally gave up on the idea, and was working out how to utilise Cyrano instead.

Posted Image

Not that much work needed to be done. Cyrano was naturally empathetic, plus he was ignorant of what was transpiring, so he talked of me in a kind manner. As ever, all the other villagers were keen to converse with a new face.

Posted Image

Soon, the tide began to reverse. I was getting back on side with my villagers!

Posted Image

But Agent S, who had been working tirelessly to pin down some evidence against me, was fraying under the pressure.

Posted Image

It seemed my time was up. She had finally cracked.

Posted Image

I was frogmarched back to her house for interrogation. I had to think quickly... I could tell she was inexperienced in interrogation, and generally stressed by the situation.

Posted Image

So feigning defeat, I took on the role of the angry and defiant criminal. I shouted abuse, and threw in probing questions about her work. I asked if she had an issues.

Posted Image

I had touched a nerve. She started to reveal a weakness. She was overly competitive with fellow agents Kid Cat and Big Top, and wanted build her own reputation.

Posted Image

Plus, her extended reconnaissance was taking a toll on the agency's budget.

Posted Image

Now in counsellor mode, I suggested some fresh night air. I managed to move the conversation outside, where she continued to moan.

Posted Image

She was desperate and volatile, not to mention in a government agent, so something had to be done. I made a run for it, and quickly found Curt, who was shocked that I was still alive.

Posted Image

We hunkered down at his place for the night. By the morning, we had formed a plan.

Posted Image


It was a stop-gap solution at best, but I was sure it would work, and at least by me some time.
This village was a place of self-sufficiency, of written correspondence. Technology was the weakness of my villagers. I'd seen even my closest allies fall prey to it's follies. Knowing Agent S' temperament, it was clear what had to be done.

When I next saw Agent S, it was clear that the plan had worked a treat.

awesome read as usual.

Is it just me or did anyone else think cyrano is a hipster? XD

That Curt dude, scares the shit out of me. I wouldn't mess with him. Also the 12th pic down has to be given a photographic prize or something, really captures the whole "A picture is worth a thousand words" title.

Brilliant, I think this is one of my favourite episodes so far!

I wonder now, though, whether you'll be using Animal Crossing 3D for T.I.D. when we finally get it? All the pictures made me realise that any screenshots taken in-game (assuming it keeps the screenshot function) would probably be smaller or stretched.

So, any plans for a future Animal Crossing 3D T.I.D.? :D

Can't have plans without a 3DS... </3

Well, I take non-widescreen pictures at 640x480, and the 3DS' resolution is 400×240 in 3D... Unless they offer a panoramic effect in 2D (800x240)... That is about half the size, which is a shame, but I guess that means I can reduce my font size, and make it work still.

Really would buy a 3DS just for AC though! :P It looks so SHINY and NEW and there are NEW NPCs.... Gah!
