Waterworks is an Interactive Comic, created by LuFa as a MSPA Forum Adventure; apart from normal and animated panels, it also makes use of Flash animations accompanied by music, Homestuck-style.It follows the adventures of Connie Cohen, a "concerned citizen" who arrives at the local waterworks to investigate the mysterious lack of water in her household. As it turns out, the facility has been taken over by a gang of thugs who apparently wish to steal the water for reasons unknown, and it is up to Connie to stop them. And, of course, then it turns out that there is far more at stake than that...Combat and action abound throughout.It can be read here, and the original forum threads are here and here.
In Spite of a Nail: In an attempt to prevent her date with LL from going wrong like it did the first time, Connie convinces him to go to the Alpha Hall instead of the Skylight, which is where the Mist look-alike crashed their date. Unfortunately, she shows up at the Alpha Hall and manages to lure LL away anyways, much to Connie's frustration.
Also, there's the aforementioned "Hitmontop" worker. In addition to spinning around on his head, he attempts to use triple-kick on Slick. Later, Slick is told to "mash the B button" to stop one of the goo creatures from evolving.
Wham Episode: Derelix and the revelation that the black goo is some sort of organism. There's also the easter egg during the dance sequence where it turns out that Connie has been infected by the goo SO BADLY that her skin's turned completely black.
Who Forgot The Lights?: A rare non-video game example. Whenever there's something happening in the underground, you really should turn your monitor's brightness up to the max if you want to be able to tell what's going on.
Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Connie is pretty germ-phobic, specifically in relation to toilets, and will freak out at the drop of a hat about them.
