The Piedmont Line was a Femme Pact defensive position built in 2014-2015 along the ridge due west of Broadway Boulevard in the borderlands between Oakland and Piedmont. Consisting of a series of interconnected bunkers, hardened gun positions, and pilates studios, the Piedmont Line would prove an insurmountable obstacle to the Romantic Expeditionary Force (R. E. F.)  during the ill-fated Summer Dating Offensive of 2014.

The Battle of Blue Drop Café (28 June, 2014) was the first battle in what would become known as the summer offensive of the Great Dating War (2014-2018.) Argyle Alliance forces, acting on wireless intelligence information from Oakland Command (OkC), attempted to get the phone number of Femme Pact forces manning prepared defenses at Blue Drop Café in Northern Oakland.
Most historians agree that while Argyle Alliance forces acted with notable bravery, their attack was marred by shoddy intelligence and antiquated tactics.  The battle is perhaps best known for “The Charge of La Hoodie Rouge,” an ill-fated bayonet charge by soldiers of the 20th Hooded Fusiliers, who attempted to breach defensive works at the entrance to the café in order acquire the phone number in an act of elan. However, Femme Pact forces repulsed La Hoodie Rouge through extensive use of barbed wire, an interlocking arrangement of water-cooled machine guns, and feigned indifference.
The Battle of Blue Drop Café was a grave defeat for Argyle Alliance forces and “The Charge of La Hoodie Rouge” would become synonymous with foolhardy and fruitless acts of bravery.

Dearest—

They say this will all be over by Christmas. That all this terrible dating will be over and done with. I hope so, but experience tells me otherwise. I was in San Francisco in ‘09. I recall the bitterness, the trenches, the OKCupid dates. They said then: Boys, it…
