[PTabbedContent] [PTab=OVERALL PLOT]
Imagine a place where everything is equal. Everyone lives in the same house, everyone eats the same food, everyone gets paid the same amount of pointless money, and everything is free to citizens. A place where the crime rate is below 1%, a place where you feel safe, even if you don’t always have a choice in your life. The City is just like this. Full of light, love, and routine. People are provided with everything they need to live; maybe not everything they want, but everything that the government sees as necessary.
You may be thinking, “why would anyone live here, they have no choice in their future.” But that isn’t entirely true. Citizens have a right to chose their job, their spouse, their clothes, everything. The choices available aren’t always perfect or plentiful, but there is always a choice to be made.
People didn’t really like the idea of being controlled. Everyone likes freedom and liberty. It was 8 years ago when the rebellion first began to appear. People would protest work, try to pay for items at the store, peaceful things like that. For a year things went on peacefully with no result. Finally, the rebels decided they needed to take things to a higher level.
They bombed the City wall.
Hundreds of citizens died or went missing and the rebels escaped to the forest, away from the City. For the next few years, more and more people gave into their rebel sympathies and fled the City in search of the rebel base.
The Memory War
For three years the City was developing a new technology that would change the tides of the war. it was a machine that introduced a new front, a Memory front. Enemies of the City were captured and taken to the Machine room where they minds were changed. The technology allowed the scientists to block memories from being accessed and then put false ones in place. The subject’s memories were not gone completely, just nearly impossible to remember. President Spring called this project The Memory War and those who received the “treatment” the Recreated.
Spring was ruthless in fighting back against the Rebels. He did whatever it took to keep his citizens loyal to the City, even if that meant taking their minds and twisting them with an electric current (which made the memory swapping possible). He didn’t mount any attacks on the rebel base, as he couldn’t find it. But he did work to capture rebels or those with sympathies so he could return them to loyalty.
People can fight back against the memory swap. Everyone is different and there are always times when people regain the truth of themselves. Everyone knows that when it comes to the Memory War, love conquers everything. After all...
LOVE DON’T DIE.
Rebels are generally former citizens of the City who have gone rogue. For the most part, they have a hatred for the City and the way it is run. The rebels live in a camp outside the City. A clearing in the forest makes up their home base. There are barracks, armories, a kitchen and mess hall, as well as a medical station. This base is the home to the Rebels and is well hidden. Just as there is technology that will alter memories, there is also technology that will change what unwanted visitors will find if they stumble upon the clearing.
The recreated are those who have been captured by the City and had their memories altered. They might be rebels, they might be citizens. Either way, their thoughts were drifting away form loyalty to the City. While the technology can change memories, it cannot erase them completely. That means, they can potentially regain the truth after time. The machines to alter memories are always on, and if anyone gets out of hand they will likely end up forgetting their beef with the City.
The captives are prisoners of the Rebels. Generally speaking, they are high ranking citizens of the City or just regular people. On occasion though, they could be former Rebels who were captured and had their memories changed. While the captives might be tortured, they will likely be interrogated for information on the City. If they were rebels who have been altered, then it is the goal of the Rebels to keep them locked up until a way to regain their rightful memories is discovered.
The citizens of the City are very privileged, but at the same time their lives are very controlled. Many of them live in fear of the rebels and most of them have lost someone in the various rebel attacks. Some of the citizens might have rebel sympathies, but if they show it they would likely be executed or have their memory swapped. The City has a strong military force, but after the first few Rebel attacks they have lost many soldiers.
