Noah's Integration (WIP)
How the best contortion boy on the Italian block, Noah Martini, turned into the ultimate flexible bot, serial number AN14-0213979!
Welcome to Utopia! :3
In the year 2201, the mankind is happily donating half of its male offsprings to the Vraexol System, usually referred to as Utopia. Nobody knows what exactly is happening in these vast underground cities built by the aliens in the recent decades, but since the aliens seem to be highly benevolent galactic peacemakers and always share some really amazing technology with the humanity, everybody assumes it must be something awesome! *w*
Noah always knew he was born to join some kind of "System" and he couldn't wait for the day! Of course he had no idea when exactly this day would come for him, only that he is supposed to keep his body in a good physical condition.
When he was a young child, Noah once woke up in his beautiful appartment in Venice and after stretching and yawning he sat on his soft white bed, trying to remember the amazing dream he just had. He was swallowed and chewed up by a huge bubble gum that wrapped his entire body like a costume, so thoroughly that only his mouth alone was left for breathing, and the next thing that happened, he turned into a sort of bubble gum boy himself, able to bend his body in every way like it was made of rubber!
"Just like those contortionist people," his mama said during breakfast.
"Contra...huh?" Noah raised his brows so much they disappeared under his cute brown fringe.
"Look," his mama poked a few times into the wall and the little search box expanded and started a video of a strangely dressed boy who suddenly bent backwards and kept going and helping himself until his head went between his own legs from behind. After doing something so amazing, the boy smiled at the audience as if this was something completely ordinary, then went on crawling further and further between his legs until his shoulders went through and his head stretched so far that the back of his shaggy hair touched his own crotch. The boy closed his eyes and became completely still in this position, as if he was a sculpture, while his turning table made one full turn, showing every detail of his extremely stretched body.
"Very beautiful, isn't it?" Noah's mama said, noticing how much her boy was impressed.
"My God, Mama, it's just like my dream!!" Noah poked his little finger into the wall. "How does he do it?"
"I don't know, dear, but I once heard it takes many years of training."
"Do you think I could learn it??"
"Didn't you want to learn playing a violin last week..."
"Noooo, I don't wanna anymore!"
"Well... I suppose I can ask aunt Veronica. She likes contortionists, maybe she knows where they teach it."
"Yeah! Let's go!!"
"Finish your breakfast, darling, it took me almost an hour to cook it for you."
"Sorry Mama!!" Noah picked some pasta with his fork and suddenly chuckled, noticing how very loose and flexible it was, twisting and bending along the hard tines. "This pasta is so flexi... er, I mean, so delicious!"
Several years later...
Nobody expected the Vraexol bot when he suddenly arrived to fetch Noah to integrate him into the System. Much less did Noah expect to soon become one of such bots himself, the so-called AN-Drone series whose main function was to help the Vraexol to interact with the humans.
AN-Drones served as various intermediates between the System and the mankind, some of them helping to invite new members when it's time for their integration into the System, but most of AN-Drones just lived together with humans, representing one of the alien technologies.
Of course, since AN-Drones had to interact with humans, they would undergo radical body and mind alterations, so much that other humans no longer could recognize them as possible human beings. All the internal organs were encased by metal and their external body was reworked to a rubber-like condition, allowing them not only to reduce any possible damage to a bare minimum but also stretch and bend their bodies beyond human abilities.
Because of this and their mental reprogramming, no human scientists could ever recognize AN-Drones as former human beings and they were globally embraced as another amazing alien technology. Humans usually called them robots, androids, AN-D's, andies, etc. It was up to humans how they would use their obtained AN-Drones, and thanks to their incredible physical condition AN-Drones very often used as entertainers of all sorts, such as dancers and contortionists.
AN14-0213979 a.k.a. 979 a.k.a. Nine, which was Noah's new handle by which he was known after his integration, became one of such service bots and was assigned to the Simons family as a caretaker of the younger son, Sam Simons, who was a modular human, another recent alien technology. Modular humans were basically limbless but able to wear a wide range of artificial limbs, which however required some maintenance and care, so they usually got a helper from the System for free.
Since both Sam and Nine were greatly obsessed with contortion, they basically had fun all day, every day. Of course because of his mental override Nine never acted fully human, more like a very humanlike robot, which inspired Sam a lot to treat him more as a bendable toy, but for Nine it was absolutely ecstatic to be treated like that in his new condition, he was absolutely focused on helping Sam around fulfilling his every wish.
Not to say Sam was a bad guy, actually the opposite, but he did have some wild ideas assuming that Nine was just a robot and could be ordered to do whatever. At least Nine in his super condition took all the challenges with a great pleasure, always getting rewarded by the System for his great service.
Thanks a lot to Kito for help with Noah's design AND of course of coming up with the whole 2201/System setting!! :3
