"Yo! This is the Commando! The Lyran Commando, not that C&C clown. Anyway, I want to wish a happy 'Welcome Back' to the newest installment in the MechWarrior franchise: MechWarrior V. And after 29 years I still love blowing the crap out of Kuritan Panthers. Kudos to the BattleTech community, the true giant robot RPG veterans."

"(Attention, Destroid! This is the Legal Representative of Harmony Gold! We order you to cease and desist in your usage of Robotech's mechanical designs! We'll sue Smith & Tinker and Piranha Games like we did FASA in 1996!)"

"Destroid?! What do you think I am? Some kind of Veritech? How about I cease and desist you?"

FWOOOSH! BZZZZT!

"(Aaaaaaahhh!)"

MechWarrior Is Back

A nerd rage ficlet

Inspired and based off Frank Klepacki's 10th anniversary greetings to Command & Conquer fans.

MechWarrior, BattleTech, C&C and Robotech are not mine. Hear that, Harmony Gold? They're NOT mine. So FRAK off.

This ficlet is wishful thinking... A shame.

Also: The Clans? Word of Blake? Dark Ages? What are you talking about? It's 3025 AD, not 3050-something-in-your-head-only. Wishful thinkers who want better-than-LosTech weapons. Right. Next you'll be combining BattleTech with the Tom Clancy Universe...
