The Starcon2 Secret Theater

Part One



Current Zar note: The Secret Theaters are really more like a fanfic done with fake screencaps, a sort of multimedia fanfic if you will. So it's not really a true screencap adventure exactly, but it IS told through screencaps, so this seems like the right classification for it. They're called Secret Theaters because in one of the fancy versions of MGS2, I forget which one, there was a "Secret Theater" that'd let you mess with the cutscenes in the game and replace one character with another to great comedic effect, haha. I did this installment in 2006.

Warning! The basic conceit here is that the Captain agrees to have sex with ZEX to get the Shofixti maidens instead of hunting down the beast. I wrote this trying to mimic the sex scene with Talana in-game, and as such, ZEX similarly can be pushy when the Captain is reluctant, confused, or resistant, which can be upsetting if you're sensitive to that kind of thing! Like the scene in the game it's also entirely a black screen with suggestive dialogue. Be aware if you decide to keep reading!




I'M GOING TO STRAIGHT TO HELL FOR THIS. BUT AS THE DEVIL TAKES ME IN HIS CLAWS TO DRAG ME DOWN INTO THE FIREY DEPTHS, I'M TAKING WAYWARDOCTAGON WITH ME BECAUSE THIS IS PARTLY HER FAULT

YOU KNOW WHERE THIS IS GOING ALREADY, DON'T YOU.

Just like Tanaka, haha.

WELL THAT PATH IS NO FUN. Yes I did all the paths what

ANOTHER BORING ONE. LET'S GET THIS SHOW ON THE ROAD.

You bet I agree to those terms.

I CAN'T BELIEVE I ACTUALLY DID THIS GUYS

ZEX!

I'M NOT GAY

OUR DIRTY LEATHERY SHAMEFUL SECRET FOREVER.

AND THAT'S ALL I DID

So what do you think, realistic? I tried to keep the rhythm and tone of the game itself, thus why the sex scene is fairly tame, all things considered. IT COULD HAVE BEEN WORSE, IF YOU'RE HORRIFIED NOW which actually just makes me look like more of a freak doesn't it.

I wanted to try and keep everything consistent in terms of motion, so the oscilloscope and ZEX change with each frame (ZEX switches between maybe five or six different frames, and the oscilloscope between three cause I was lazy and didn't think anyone would notice unless I pointed it out).

The thing about the Starcon2 fonts is that they are all buggy and weird if you set them to not anti-alised, and if you DO set them to anti-aliased, they get all blurry. I had to do some fancy tricks with size to get the fonts to match up, but they aren't exactly perfect, mostly that the Captain's font is a pixel or two too short and the black outline on ZEX's is maybe a pixel or two too thick. Did you notice?

I CAN'T BELIEVE I WENT AND MADE THIS MANY FAKE SCREENSHOTS BECAUSE I AM THIS SADLY OBSESSED WITH ZEX AND WANT A WAY TO LET HIM LIVE AND SAVE THE SHOFIXTI AT THE SAME TIME. GOD WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME.
