The Faster Than Angels series written by Ace3000 mainly follows two teams, Angelus and Crinale, along with many characters that are both affiliated and unaffiliated with those teams. His series is split up into seasons, each following a main story arc, with season 2 being split up into 3 cours.

Season 1Edit

PreludeEdit

Season 1 was preceded by 4 introductory parts, posted on WipEoutZone from April 20 to May 1, 2014. They were written before the idea of a series was created. These parts could be called Season 1, Part 0; or Season 0. They do not have to be read, but they will be listed here for completion's sake.

List of PartsEdit

Part 0.1.1: Angelus History

Part 0.1.2: Angelus AGR1 Details

Part 0.2.0: Crinale History

Part 0.3.0: A New Contender

FX400: Angelus vs. CrinaleEdit

On May 9, 2014, the Faster Than Angels thread was created on WipEoutZone by Ace3000, getting the idea to write out a complete series. The season opened with The Threat, and ended with Music Has the Right to Love, on September 8, consisting of 8 main parts, and totalling 16 individual parts.

Season 1 dealt with Angelus' struggle against Crinale, a team that split off from Angelus, disagreeing with their ideals. Their main goal seemed to be to recreate the F9000, leaving Angelus to fight against them in their own ways.

Starting with Part 2, the tradition of naming parts after music albums was introduced.

Curse of the DevilEdit

Main article: Curse of the Devil

Curse of the Devil was a side-story, written to aid in bridging the gap between the end of the FX400 in March 2210 to the beginning of the new F12000 league in 2212. It was intended to be Crinale's side of the time, but some parts contained other people and groups. The mini-series ran from December 19, 2014 to January 30, 2016. The links to the parts can be seen in the main article.

Cour 2: Angelus vs. the F12000, Part 1Edit

The second cour of Season 2 started on February 6, 2016. It was the cour to start off the newly made F12000 League, created by Ace3000. It ran until the final part, F12000 Girls Will Seem Somewhat [CENSORED], was posted on August 5, when a combination of time constraints and writer's block meant that Ace3000 could not continue with the series. However, he promised that it would return again soon. The second cour lasted for 17 main parts, or 31 total individual parts.

Season 3Edit

Main article: Faster Than Angels Season 3 (Ace3000 Series)

Immediately following Season 2.9, Ace3000 continued the story seamlessly into Season 3, starting with Part "0", or Season 2.9_F.

Season 3 is split into two separate Arcs: F12000 and Archangel. The F12000 arc continues into the 2215 F12000 season, directly following from Season 2.9. Archangel Arc is set at an unknown time in 2215, and follows the mysterious Rei Kurokawa, an information broker stationed in Ikebukuro. He also begins to race the local touge racers, under the pseudonym "Archangel".

While the F12000 parts keep up the tradition of being named after albums, the tradition is slightly switched up for the Archangel Arc, those parts are named after 'song' titles.

The full list of posted parts, including links, can be seen in the main article.
