Action Fiction Utopic/Dystopic

There has been a great war going on in the country of Pandion, which is one of the biggest countries on the planet Lindor. The government on Pandion is an imperial country that has been separated into two different sides, Scag and Regime.
      The Regime is the government’s side of the war, as for the Scag are the militia fighting against the government force the people on the Scags side do not support anything involving the government. Whether it be work, buy houses, or put their kids in schools that are part of the Regime. Even though some people are on the Scags side they think education is important for kids and sends them to school anyway.
      The people that are on the Regimes side do not get to choose if they go to war or not, the government decides for them. People who donate money to the Regime live very wealthy lives and do not worry about anything. People who are on the Regimes side but do not donate are ignored by the Government and live poor lives. The government treats anybody that does not donate the same, taxes are high, bills are high, even buying food is high. The people who donate to the Regimes get lower taxes, less bills, and are given a pin that says they are for the government (which makes buying food cheaper for them) The government provides them with new tech and things that no one else could buy.
     People one the Scags side all work for the Scag-some people who are on the Scags side live in the towns and cities to get info or just didn’t want to move; They live in either small concrete houses, little houses like forts that have been built out of the government trash, or they live in tents; some also live with the Regime side to try and seek latest information to give to the Scag. Anyone on the Scags side gets to choose if they fight or support. Most of them live away from the military and make places for them to live out there where most do not live they build up from out there.

It's just 44 hours, really, and weddings are supposed to fly by. Right?

~

The moment he stepped onto the hotel property, Ian should've realized a mistake was made. He should've expected something when his ex-girlfriend's bridesmaid kept asking him for favors but wasn't paying him back. Even if he was more than happy to support an old friend, even to escape the menial architecture job he's been at since he and the now-bride broke up, the next three days are for her. He will not complain.

Robert - or Bo - is only there because his family made him. He doesn't want to be here. He's his sister's plus one, and, while he knows getting out of the house is probably good for him, Bo's willing and ready to wallow in his left-behind dreams of music and dance. He doesn't know anyone. He just hopes that he'll be able to talk to as few people as possible, find his room without getting lost, and be able to gorge himself on food.

It's just 44 hours, really, and weddings are supposed to fly by. Right?
