Golden Age Infiltrator by we-r-nomad Golden Age Infiltrator by we-r-nomad
Actress, model, dancer, aviatrix. Maria Eliazbeth Shelley was the darling of Tinsel Town during the tumultuous years in which the film industry made the difficult transition for silent movies to sound.

Early in her career she was known for all manner of adventurous stunts, each aimed at enhancing her fame and popularity. She caused quite a scandal when she landed an autogyro on the red carpet of the 3rd Annual Academy Awards celebration, capping off the incident by throwing the keys to an approaching police officer and saying "Don't scratch the paint, hon."

The flamboyant, multi-talented woman was considered by many cinema historians to be the Paris Hilton or Lindsey Lohan of her day. The trouble is, "her day"was eighty years ago.

As fate would have it Shelley would have the customary, brief career of a golden age Hollywood starlet, her popularity fading rapidly as she approached 30.

In the late 1930's, and early 1940's she found regular work in the moderately popular movie serial series Debutante Detective in which she played the lead. However, this initially coveted regular work came with the unavoidable stigma of type casting. When Shelley was too old to be believable as a debutante, her career was effectively over.

Shelley fell out of public life soon after.

Two years ago, an ancient, shriveled. near centurion Maria Elizabeth Shelley was carefully plucked from a nursing home bed by a specially designed Seeker.

The barely living former starlet was brought to FMP and rejuvenated to her former glory by the robots' prodigious technology. As it would turn out, the denizens of FMP were avid fans of the ancient Debutant Detective serial, as so much of it focused on damsels in distress situations.

It was rapidly observed that the rejuvenated Shelley obeyed her robot fans' every request eagerly, without ever needing to be subjected to a mind control chip. The 99 year old was profoundly grateful to be given back the body of a 22 year old, and worshiped by an entire planet.

So grateful in fact, that when the war with AMAZON began, Shelley volunteered her services as an infiltrator/saboteur intent upon fomenting chaos in AMAZON ranks.

Her aviatrix skills keeping her in good stead, the wily red-head, joined the Anti Madification Army as a Swan pilot.

At present, Shelley is considered an ace attack pilot, reputed for being able to bring her plane home, no matter what the odds. Many times she had returned even after her whole squadron had been ambushed and captured by FMP.

The other AMAZON's don't yet suspect that she's leading her fellow pilots into bondage. Nor do they remotely recognize the once famous Debutante Detective--a fact that fuels her desire to see all the young philistines around her bound and maidified.

A viper in AMAZON's midst, Lt. Shelley is potentially as dangerous as a Behemoth load of Seekers

Double agents. This a huge advantage that the FMP have over the Amazons. The FMP won't have anyone they can pass off to be a robolord to gain info, and while they may have plenty of POWs, they don't have any danger of maids posing as infiltrators. They would be constantly bound, unable to leave their master's sight, and easily caught.

I just had an evil idea.

I was working on a story in which Prin looses the prototype Scramble Gown, and is lost behind enemy lines, as FMP overruns an AMAZON outpost.

In my orginal idea, Prin is stranded due to Shelly's well timed refusal to provide critical air support.

Broken Arrow by we-r-nomad

I thought that in addition to that, Shelley would return to the site of the battle, and promise to fly Prin out of the "Catch-Zone", to the nearest Teleportal. Of course, in order to do this, Prin would have to exhaust her power packs by boosting up to catch, and link up with the fast moving jet.

Naturally, as Prin is just about to hook her gown to a skyhook type hardpoint on Shelley's jet, the latter would close her speed brakes, light her after burners, and leave Prin alone, aghast, and out of power. (To add insult to injury, her robot bear would reveal its true nature, and blow Prin a kiss.)

I look forward to drawing Prin's expression as she crashes to the ground, and looks up hatefully at the retreating jet.

Of course, now Shelley has to hope Prin gets captured, or her cover is practically blown.

Not just her cover, but her life!! ^^;

BTW, when Shelly returns to base, she'll give an academy award worthy performance about how she tried but was too late to rescue poor, poor Prin. :crying:

I had another idea of misleading the audience with a picture of Prin tightly maidifed, in a skimpy, Lolita themed maid uniform, but only have it be the daydream of an FMP officer type robot, as he eagerly deploys foot drones to Prin's  crash site.

BTW. Things don't end well for him.

Yes.

There is a Retainer, known only as Jan.

In appearance, I've based her on 1970's starlet, Eve Plumb.

Jan03 by we-r-nomad Jan01 by we-r-nomad

She's distinguished by her "smart gurl" eyeglasses, so imagine the second picture, wearing the eyewear of the first. ;)

Jan was only a child when the Benefactors overthrew the FMP homeworld. She spent her youth being taught what would become the principles of the Mechalyte Ministery, and grew into womanhood looking forward to the day she would receive The Three Blessings:

1.) The Raiment of the Benefactors:
The aproned uniform that protects the faithful from the sin of pride.

2.) The Embrace of the Benefactors: The strict belts that protect the faithful from the sin of disobedience.

3.) The Kiss of the Benefactors: The ubiquitous veil which protects the faithful from the sin of blasphemy.

Jan so completely believes in the divinity to the Benefactors, that she is willing to fight for her gods. She has already done so, by infiltrating the Cosmo Corps, and sabotaging their flagship during the Great Betrayal.

Worshiping machines, Jan is a gifted engineer, (A skill set which facilitated the aforementioned infiltration.) and has been trained in many fighting arts by her masters, who have every confidence her skills will never be turned against them.

Think she was encountering, just another airheaded Bellneck, Prin  lowered her guard, and was bested by Jan, before reinforcements arrived. This allowed her to escape a Madevac raid, with her Benefactor.

Prin
claims that surprise was Jan's only advantage in that first engagement. Time will tell if this is truly the case.

Oh yeah! I remember Jan. And she bested Prin? :o (Eek) 

Now I really want a story with her! She's definetly one of the more interesting characters as we don't know any maids who were one of the original Treahans.

Regarding the Three Blessings, I think I'll make the first blessing a protection against the sin of modesty, or of hiding their beautiful bodies from their masters. Jan would certainly be proud of her Raiment, so that would represent scant protection from pride.

*Chuckle* A... fascinating idea, I suppose. Admittedly, not one that I ever had contemplated, but still interesting nonetheless.

It reminds me of the 'wing commander' series of games. They are old - very, very old. However, my current partner/pet introduced them to me, and I was surprised to see such a star-studded cast and high-quality story.

The similarities are there - space action, an evil captive-taking race, multiple factions, infiltrators, fighters that essentially look like planes in space (and literally held together with rivets)...

Though there are some critical differences - I will take the FMP over the much more disintegrating-y catpeople villains...

Of course. Afterall, how much more money did Star Wars make than 2001: A Space Odyssey?

And how long did Firefly stay on the air.

It doesn't matter if you're well written, critically acclaimed, or intellectually groundbreaking; the mass market appeal of realistically depicted space is quite limited.

I had assumed you had been reading through my gallery and already knew about FMP's rejuvenation. That's why I made my case earlier for cyborg separation. If they can give a 99 year old woman the body of a 23 year old pole dancer, they can clean the biological infestation from an otherwise perfectly good cyborg. :nod:

Ah, all right. Well, of course I was familiar with the high degree of technology that the FMP has access to - blinking lights, heavy use of boldface, lots of levers, dials, mind-control devices, lasers, and I am sure a smourgasbourd of buttons. Embarrassingly enough, I never really thought of that. Huh. Perhaps the organic parts really -are- dragging down the positronic processors.

Looks great.
Certainly one can see why the planet is so fond of her.

This actually makes me question: Is that a standard "freedom" treatment "celebrities" on FMP get for being "cultural references and artists" or is that rather for those who are directly working in the ranks of the FMP?

:iconwe-r-nomad:
we-r-nomad Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2009
Actually, Shelley's freedom of movement comes from the fact that when she was initially maidified and put to work (A period during which new "recruits" traditionally require the highest levels of power broadcast to their forehead chips to secure cooperation.) Shelley obeyed all commands without any detectable increase in power output to her mind control device.

The robots had to research the ancient cultural records of the defeated human civilization that once ruled FMP to discover a descriptive term for Shelley's unusual mental state. The linguistically obsolete phrase translates roughly to the word "willingness".

Ironically, Shelley's freedom of movement and travel on FMP comes from her enthusiastic acceptance of bondage and servitude. This comes from a combination of gratitude for being rejuvenated, as well as a legitimate enjoyment of being tied up by robots.

In the words of Domestic Cleaning Device Council member AREX--000701, "Who knew?"

Interesting. Certainly I'm sure nobody can blame for that.
While I'm still relatively young it seems that age either makes you ignore some problems you might have had before about what is socially acceptable or makes them worse.
Seems Shelley falls in the second category. I guess one might argue that even in a restrictive housemaid uniform she still enjoys more freedom of movement thanks to her rejuvanted body than she had before she arrived on FMP.

I guess FMP might also at some point have unexpected results with some AMAZON officers suffering from Stockholm Syndrome.
Not the boring real life one but the Hollywood one, where a subject without any brainwashing actually joins the party who has captured her because they believe in their ideals... or just like the uniform AKA "Oooh, Shiny Coin!" effect.

You've brought up an excellent point.

Sure, Shelley is long forgotten as a movie star, (It's doubtful any AMAZON's are going to look into bondage laden cliffhanger movie serials.^^;) but since her rejuvenation, she has reacquired her trademark "movie star good looks." Shelley is distractingly beautiful, even to other AMAZON's.

Now this could become an issue when, over time, the AMAZON's notice that FMP drones tend to abduct women in order of degree of physical beauty.

I could see an uneasy conversation between Mariah Elizabeth Shelley and a mechanic working on her fighter.

Mechanic: "Wow"

Shelley: "Excuse me?"

Mechanic: "I'm sorry, Lieutenant, I was just noticing that you actually look just like the girl in your nose art. I was just thinking nobody could be that pretty."

Shelley: "Are you hitting on me, Specialist?"

Mechanic: :blush: "Oh no no no! I was just thinking.

A couple of months ago we had a hull breach, and the 'bots sent a bunch a' them Seeker thingees into the hangar here.

Carried off a bunch of us mechanics. Wrapped 'em up like Christmas presents and just flew off. They were in a hurry and they couldn't get all of us, so they just grabbed the prettiest ones as far as I can figure.

I hate to say it but I reckon they left me alone because the girls they snatched up were all prettier than me. When I look at you though, I figure the 'bots are knockin' each other over to get their claws on you. You must be an amazing pilot not to be maidified already."


Shelley: *Dons her helmet and lowers her visor* "Don't scratch the paint, hon."

Ah, I see.:nod: Very astute.

Yea, I figured that even some women would be stunned by Shelley's looks though not to the extent that men, or perverted robots, would be.

Two things come to mind now. First, I have seen many women, exactly that stunning, and it's also been my experience that a good many of them actually are evil. They can almost afford to be.

The other thing is that some women are resentful of those possessing starlet looks. Certainly, the aforementioned evil can cause said resentment but sometimes its prejudicial.

Yes, some AMAZON's may hate Shelley 'cause she's beautiful. :laughing:
