- Campus Safari
1998 - Present
Campus Safari is a sci-fi fantasy which primarily concerns anthropomorphic characters, that is, animals with human characteristics. The time frame is current day and they're attempting in a very messed up manner, to make contact with humanity (Nevermind that they have constantly screwed up in their efforts and everything they do looks like an act of war, from rescuing human friends from the isolationist AMIB to taken over the planets of Mars and Venus to terraform into livable conditions WITHOUT the humans knowing and then establishing a base/Academy on Mars.
The story mainly concerns the faculty of the Mars Academy and how they deal with daily live and loves... or rather, trying to escape it.
It has currently merged with Cesillee's Diary and more comedic, although the events may no longer be official.
The setting is at the Mars Academy, where Cyantians and Terrans mix, mingle, and attempt to get an education in Cyantian Technology appropriate for export to Terra. Located on Mars, the Campus itself in mostly below ground for Meteorite protection...at least until there is enough atmosphere generated to burn them up before they strike the surface. There are also plans underway to create a strong magnetic field around Mars to deflect solar flares away from the planet protecting it the same way that Earth (Terra) is protected. Until both goals are met, the Academy will resemble a Bunker complex more than a College (further making it seem like a Military, rather than a Scholastic complex).
It is also a Major trans-shipment point for secret shipments of Terran freight, such as Cd's, canned and frozen food, Video games, Fabrics, and the occasional Terran Student, from Earth to either Mars or Cyantia. There is a small but well frequented shopping mall at the Academy with products from both worlds available for sale. While the idea was to create a market for goods from both worlds, until Contact is made; trade is minimal and more like smuggling than actual trade. Still, they manage to import enough material for certain Earth brands to have become recognized both on Mars and Cyantia.
It is currently on hiatus to prevent current actions from hampering what will happen in Akaelae (which occurs in the characters' past), and strips prior to 2/2/06 may be rewritten as a result due to Campus Safari's start without scripts.
