Interesting concept of Fab, killing humans for using them as the only 'fuel'. So as I understand, the beasts will kill all the humans and then ragdolls and then pass their souls to Fab. When all the beasts are defeated by stitchpunks, hungry Fab will go hunting by himself.
Btw there'll be 50 entrys in total.
Edit: Entry 34 There’re new military summaries in fresh newspapers again. This time from southern frontier. We’ve became conspiracy victims again. ‘’Peacemaker’’ robots have saved us once more. And again we’ve won less than in a week. The Mashine have produced a new lot of mechanical killers. Now they’re equipped with catapults with shells, which are able to carry poisonous gas or lethal bacteria. These news made Millers from the house across the road happy. They say that since that time nobody would poke his head in, for sure. But now we, it seems, declare war on our ex-allies on the east. It turned out that a good half of their territory is our age-old land. Since we have “peacemakers” at our disposal, we don’t need toput up with it anymore.
Oh, why I forgot? That makes me wonder, why Fab created another species of machine. Looks like CSM's main purpose is to find the talisman(interesting, where is was lying until Cat Skull have found it?) and inserting it into the Fabricator.
The Talisman was removed from the Fab, and given to 9 by the late Scientist.
The Cat Beast finds 2 and 9 in the wastes, and steals both 2 and the Talisman away. Unfortunately for the cat, it's intercepted before it can use 2's soul to reactivate the Fab via the Talisman. Fortunately, 9 does it for him by mistake.
Interesting to see, what soul/ souls the Scientist will use: - his one and the dolls will have characters of his relatives and friends because those'll be his memories. - his one and souls of his relatives and friends.
I think the most likely variant it the first one. Anyway, I want to read about his wife's and his sons' death.
We even haven’t time to get that it’s the world war. All the machinery and manpower, which other countries could have give to iron armadas, emerging from the womb of the Factory, tear to threads. The Machine is really developing with a crazy speed.
Thanks to both Dim and Dasha...I'd never explored this thread before, thinking that both versions *had* to be roughly the same...
I almost like this one better, since it seems to me to be grimmer, grittier, and more emotional than the American one. I can't wait to compare this Scientist's thoughts about the ragdolls with the other one's.

"We are lit within by all we've been and by all we care to be"--Erin McKeown, To The Stars
A battle is being fought outside. Citizen soldiers – nobody but legless and armless war veterans, - have rolled out an antitank cannon and are trying to shoot down the walking robot. At neighbouring threshold dead commissioner is lying, scattered a pile of leaflets with an appeal “Resist!” around him. What a fear… Another group from a bell tower is pelting the robot with Molotov cocktails, trying to hit in the jugular. But these monsters do not have jugulars. Joseph have bumped to us. His house is destroyed, his old mother have died under blockages. He’ll stay overnight in our house and will go to dismantle the ruins tomorrow to bury her humanely. I’ve told him everything. I’ve asked him to slap me. He responded that if he’ll slap me, hi’s afraid he would bring me relief. He haven’t stayed in our house.
