Thank you. Ok low down on this plot's backstory with a little rehashing.

During "Iron and Steel" introduced more formally than in "The Rogue and the Jackal", are Dirk & Finn who are human AUs of Digit and Fidget. The twins are assigned to the case the Inspector is on but only Dirk proves his worth in towards the end, beating up one of the bad guys. Finn, not at all but by "Devil's Blood" is now teamed up with Zack.

Now during Iron and Steel, Alan fought against Finch and won in the end. This was a black eye to Finch who received a second black eye during Devil's Blood for refusing an assignment from Dr. Claw. But to lead HAPPY down the wrong trail, given the orders to do just that. MAD then owed Finch a favor and that took the form of permission to make a new flight suit.



. Alan was forbidden from attempting to help a cyborg co-worker after the man voiced protest at acknowledging years of felt pity from him. Add in during this he quickly wants Finch's hide after learning what he did to his laptop in Devil's Blood.

. Finn is eager to learn the new trade and prove to others he can be useful.

. Zack has been itching to be working outside his cubicle for some time, and Finn is the perfect chance at that. That and having a strong hunch 3 MAD specialized agents working together should have someone keeping an eye on them.

Before showing page 20 which essentially the start to that plot, I feel I must share some before hand details to the AU.

Coming off the canon content of the bad guys working for MAD, I made a few more organizations with acronym names from emotions.

The right side of the law:

HAPPY ( status active )
JOY ( status inactive but has been used in period set stories )
UNEASY ( active but has yet to be really shown )
---------
ACME ( was integrated into HAPPY years back )
---------
The wrong side of the law:

MAD ( status active )
RAGE ( status active )
FURY ( what became RAGE )
--------
VILE ( has ceased to be )

VILE existed from the 1800's into the 1990's and some of it's employees sought out other related work after it's end. Hence why you might read reference of Carmen working for also RAGE later on.

UNEASY was created because some people around me wanted to say HAPPY was a spy organization when it's not. UNEASY fills that role.

As for those pale people with pointed ears and golden eyes. They're human. They are redesigned Olmecs. MCOG Canon image: Google Image Result for https://videocdn-sbs.akamaized.net/u/video/SBS/managed/images/2019/09/27/378976323896_09270609_image181842_large.jpg
Redesign:


They're more related into plot line A but like other stories I've done before, it's all connected.

... I have no idea how people reacted to that last page. Silence 🙁.

I am very much one to follow rules, and if it wasn't for being told crossover stories were ok, here. I wouldn't dare post the pages where you couldn't read or see, CS story elements being put to use.

--------------
Unrelated note I was told I'd be approached about this but it's been forgotten? Staff approaching me about siding with ACME or VILE, for my profile in this place.

I wish I knew how these pages were being taken. ... Is it because the total story isn't being posted here? ... I just don't know since silence is normal on DA and CF too.

Please do not be discouraged; this is a busy time of year for many people, and silence does not always mean something has gone unnoticed. By our very nature, we tend to operate from the shadows. What sort of feedback are you looking for, exactly?

This project is clearly a labor of love on your part, and for mine, I am interested in learning more. I enjoy your art style - it's highly reminiscent of one of my favorite TV shows, Jonny Quest. What if you made a single thread for your work, and began posting it from the very beginning? That way, it might make it easier for others to follow along and become engaged in the world you have built.

At nearly five years in, I am very proud of it.

The kind of feedback I'm looking for is people's thoughts on events in the pages and the plot. ... I didn't post the whole story since it's a very spread out. Two pages were shared awhile back when I gave a slight overview of the CS fandom appearing through out the project on it's whole.

Three plots are running through this and I felt only inclined to share the secondary one since that's the only one using a CS character, and meant to act reminiscent to a point of the first animated series.

Ok, this in a nutshell before I post in full.

The "Forge of Hate" was the 3rd major story of the series. In it one of the grunts or thugs, goons however you'd like to state it was picked to act as a stand in to Dr.Claw, while he avoided things going very south for MAD's HQ. While that event was taking place, Louis the stand in, got it forced on him that to save all his co-workers and self, it was actually best MAD's HQ get blown to kingdom come.

"Iron and Steel" the 4th major story. Louis is now wanted for dead by Dr.Claw for the act he allowed to happen in Forge of Hate. Claw tries to send Terry after Louis to kill him. Terry being Louis's best friend and the man who'd know him best. Well Terry couldn't go trough with it and so became a target himself. Two specialized agents for MAD were sent after him and one of those got killed ... by the other. Terry's girlfriend Amazon Annie.

During Iron and Steel is also when the CS crossover starts to show in mentioning and one panel, showing Carmen Sandiego, mentioning Crime Net, Ivy, and using Zack. It's also formally when Dirk and Finn get into introduced. Those two first appeared in " The Rogue and The Jackal," the 2nd major story.

"Devil's Blood" is the 5th major story and most built up one. In that story MAD is finally ready to have a new dignified HQ. It gains one in the end but not without getting some of the purchase money stolen by Terry, Louis and Annie with a new gang to help back them up. In the end of their heist, Annie knowing they don't have all the money they needed, suggests they visit Japan for help.

It's when the two sides of the good guys coin finally meet up. John ( Inspector Gadget ) & Jake ( Gadget Boy, who in this universe is actually older than John. ) An OC named Isaac Chalopin is mentioned given he is at that time considered a medical failure and hasn't been forgotten by HAPPY in that respect.

This story is also when the twin boys get their roles in HAPPY better defined. Most of the clip of that was shared in a different thread.

Finch and not for the first time, tries to figure out how to create a new flight suit after totaling the original in Iron and Steel. Ultimately in a near car crash, he uses a flashdrive to steal Alan's flight technology spec.s off the man's laptop.

In the end everyone is reminded an old threat is still present in HAPPY. The still incarcerated iRogue, introduced back The Rogue and The Jackal.

Steampunk inspired and period set (1895) "Smoke, Steam and Mirrors" focused on Jocelyn who is an oddball in being both an AU and OC at the same time. She in idea comes from the lost series "Gadget-Girl". Her and partner are shown at the dawn of them battling against VILE.

Ok, after that last post, it dawned on me something was missing from it which might be helpful here. A way to decode the font set language meant for the Olmecs. No plot points happen in their tongue, but if people wondered what the heck they are saying not in English, it could be helpful.



Nothing polite was said back on page 14.



After posting page 24 to DA earlier today, I worked out the fine details to the pages up into 31 ... and figured yet more about this AU needs to be mentioned in advance.

Brought up in "Devil's Blood" and un-named but brought up in "Team Time Troubles". Circuit Central is the same idea as Circuit City, but not gone and with a business agreement to HAPPY. Why it's relevant to bring up the AU store is it's briefly used coming up.

I said this in a PM and feel the need to say it again. Any questions about the AU, considering the summaries don't do it much justice, do ask anyway 🙂 .

    Just thought I should give a heads up about this. Those "ACME Detective Agency" shirts from Walmart.com . I finally decided to order one today as a late Christmas gift to myself because I was given a gift card for the store. Those shirts through Walmart have unknown shipping restrictions through the site. But get this? Same provider on Amazon is selling the shirt and there the shipping isn't restricted. ... Not because of ordering a T-Shirt but this isn't the first time I've seen P.O. Box rejection. .. Yeah, the gift card was useless on Amazon of course but I didn't want to give up. My new shirt is due to hit my box on the 7th.😎

    @Lucy , I need to make another short to help with the buffer for Comic Fury. The best idea to quickly producing a comic would be the B & W route again. Already I have a basic plot figured out. I have no idea if you've read Vocal Canvases or not. But in that story the roots of ACME are touched on for the AU. What would you think of a story set in 1901 in India using Jocelyn & Patrick and Raj Mahal? Part of the plot idea is coming from a Classic IG story.

    Something those of you who follow my work might get a kick from in my forgetfulness. The start of Loaded Stone was the last time I thought I'd ever be drawing Jocelyn in comic presentation. Because she's being brought back that way for the short. ... In character design she is the only one of the whole AU I have to remember how to have hand use dominance. I forgot which side here before looking back at older drawings to make the correction. This ghost arm in rough art clearly will not be in the final presentation of page 1.
