After a nuclear explosion, the world came into chaos. People have tried to escape reality through a virtual game called “Wasteland”. In order to score points and survive, players must kill their opponents. These points are traded for real money. For every hundred kills the sum increases by 20%. The nature of the game is to prepare psychologically skilled soldiers to fight in mind-controlled machines. In the game, you can play single or in a group. The money is then shared evenly if you participate in a group, however, the money is received once you register your group’s members outside of the game. By joining a group you run the risk of being betrayed and killed before receiving the money.
There are many areas in the game which resemble the real world but radioactive creatures have been seen roaming around. In the forest one of the most skilled players, Killua, is going for his 100th kill. After finding another boy hiding behind the bushes, he ambushes him thinking it’s going to be an easy kill. He was not aware though of the other boy’s quick reflexes. Knowing the forest like it was his home, the other boy maneuvered around the trees and soon enough caught Killua in a trap. What Killua did not expect was for the other boy to reveal his identity and offer a truce. The other boy, Gon, wanted to form an alliance with him and promises to never betray him. Killua of course doesn’t trust him but accepts becoming allies since he could kill him later. Despite being wary of possible betrayal, Killua noticed that Gon never backed down on his word. Never hinting of attacking him even once. And that’s when Killua’s life takes a twist and their fight for survival begins.
This is an AU I thought of at school, so I decided to write an intro and design some character profiles. It’s set in a post-apocalyptic world; “Wasteland” refers to the waste of humans as beings that are only worth depending on their potential warfare value in this context. I don’t know if I plan to go further with this, but I really liked the concept so maybe I will explore some ideas in the future. Hope you like it! (refs: +++)
this isn’t sometimes; yeah, it’s for always if I’m gonna love you with all of my heart and if there is no more time, this always remains even as the world spins itself apart cause I remember them days, I waited so patiently for god to bring someone who’s gonna be good to me
