Grids - Talisman (GRIDS WILL RETURN)

Postby GridsNaranek » Sun Feb 01, 2009 6:55 pm

Hello everyone, and it's about time too!

This thread will feature my new fic series, set several months down the road from where my previous one finished mid last year. So far, it's come to be known as 'Helix' but I want a more interesting title than that. If you want to suggest a title for this new series, feel free to do so! Who knows - yours might just get picked!

The series is, again, based around the PPGD setting my last series was, however it will branch out much further than the last lot of stories. The world is a much bigger place, after all. Updates will occur once every two days at first and may increase or decrease in regularity depending on my current circumstances.

Time to begin. This first story will be much shorter than my last couple and starts slow, but all introductions must. Enjoy, everyone! This first happening may seem peculiar but trust me, it's pivotal later on.

-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-


The explosion tore like a thunderclap through the skies above the peaceful supercity, rattling windows, stirring seabirds and turning heads and eyes toward the great metal and concrete span across the waters. At almost the very middle of the great bridge, the fading flash gave way to a rising darkness as fire and smoke began to reach skyward to mark the spot of the unearthly disturbance. The distant mountain ranges let the sound of the explosion echo only briefly, quietly, sending an aftershock of chills through all those from whom it commanded attention. The ripples on the water slowly reached the shore, rocking the yachts and private boats in their moors and splashing the boardwalks and bayside parkways with unnatural force for only a few seconds. And then, all was quiet. For just a few, brief moments, not a sound came from the city as the spire of smoke grew longer and the fire burned bright beneath it.

"MOOOOOOVE!" screamed one of the drivers of an escort car as he threw his door open, leaping out amongst the flames and wreckage, his car's tyres ruptured from the explosion of the armoured vehicle it had been escorting. His passenger clambered out, barely enough room between the car and the bridge's railing to swing his door open, scrambling away as the fires began to spread. Busted gas tanks began to leak as no less than three other immobilised squad cruisers that surrounded the charred hulk awaited the spreading flame. The two cars up ahead had been more fortunate.

They screeched to a halt the moment the explosion ripped across the bridge behind them, the lead driver bailing out and ushering the evacuated squad members to his location. One of them stumbled. His colleague spun around to assist. The convoy leader clenched his fists, "NO!" he screamed at them. They skidded to a halt just as, simultaneously, the immobilised vehicles blew themselves apart as their engines and fuel tanks erutped in a sequence deafening booms. The fallen man covered his head with his arms, but the burning fragments did not strike him. His squadmate ran to his aid as the numerous fireballs rose higher into the sky, blinding, blistering orange turning dark and ominous and trailing to the clouds as smoke. The whole city would see it, the leader knew. And they'd be clueless as to what had just happened.

So was he, "Aahhhh, fuck!" he spat, as the fallen squadmate limped to his position with his friend in tow. "Whatthehelljusthappened!" he roared at his men, each of them wearing the same pale-blue shirts as he with a small identification card clipped to their breast pockets. "Who saw it?" he jabbed a finger at the first man he laid eyes on. "Did you see it??"

"The... the thing just... exploded, sir..." panted one of the lucky drivers, breathlessly. "There... was no time to get the others out... and I think Richter was trapped in his cruiser when it went up..."

The boss did a headcount. No Richter. The man he was travelling with looked solemn and wouldn't meet his superior's eye.

"Was it a bomb?" the boss asked. There was nervousness in his voice.

One of the other escort drivers pierced him with a scrutinising glare. "A bomb... come on, boss, no way was that a bomb. The hauler seemed to fall to bits, THEN it exploded..."

"Couldn't have been..." murmured the boss, an aghast look on his face. "Is there any sign of-" he broke off as he heard something in the distance. A shrill wailing siren, growing closer, "Ahh, shit..." he grit his teeth, "You lot tell 'em nothing, ok? Dodgy engine leads to fire leads to kaboom, got it?" The men nodded. The boss spun around and leaned against his cruiser, its shiny black finish spared the wrath of the unnatural explosion of their armoured car. He straightened his shirt and stared down the bridge at the mass of flashing blue and red lights that were speeding their way up the closed-off bridge. "Poker faces, boys..."



"Now, uh... what was it that your vehicle was carrying?" Senior Sergeant Walker asked. His notepad and pen was at the ready.

The lead man, who gave his name as simply 'Beck', gave him an incredulous look. Then he smiled, and in a lighthearted tone he answered. "Apple cider."

Walker dropped his arms in frustration, glaring at the man. "Excuse me, sir, this is a SERIOUS investigation on behalf of the Megaville Police Department. I require your full co-operation on this matter."

"Hey hey... you see this?" Beck flashed the card on his pocket. "Read it, officer."

Walker perused it, squinting a little thanks to his slowly deteriorating eyesight, "'Governmental goods management and shipment bureau'... what's that meant to mean?"

"It means I work for someone far more important than you do, mister; someone whose paycheck has a LOT more zeroes on it than yours. I don't answer to you. You oughta answer to me, in fact. It doesn't MATTER what we were carrying, the fact is it's now GONE and our securicar and three of our shiny Caprices are smouldering wrecks. This was just an unfortunate set of circumstances that resulted in the loss of three of our fine personnel."

"You sure that's all who died?" asked the policeman, "If you were transporting, say... a wanted and highly influential felon... that would open up a motive for your convoy to be bombed."

"I TOLD you we were not bombed!" shouted Beck, "It was a maintenance issue with the hauler. It was scheduled to go through a fuel line replacement at the conclusion of this transport."

Walker seemed unconvinced, glancing over Beck's shoulder at the burnt husk of the security van as other cops surveyed the damage to both it and the three unmarked escort cars that exploded with it . "Damn big explosion for a fuel tank... it's a good thing we got this bridge reinforced after... last time."

"Our hauler was a specially modified type-C Rampage refitted with twin, extra-large fuel tanks. Designed to make it halfway across the country without a single stop for gas." Beck feigned disappointment, glad the charade was going well. "This was only its fifth run..."

"Why would it need maintenance after only five runs?"

Beck didn't let his expression falter, despite nearly slipping up, "Er... there was a problem with the modification. Prototyping and all that. Classified information, mind you..." he flashed his card again, for effect. "We don't need your help in this situation. This is our matter and we'll deal with it accordingly. These men lost their lives in duty to their country."

"By hauling cider?" Walker growled, irritated.

Beck smiled, "By working for us, they are doing their service to our fine nation... whatever that that duty may be."

Walker shook his head. He hated these upstart government types. He wasn't at all convinced. This could have been a bombing... or a terrorist act. But what way did he have of knowing? He was about to launch into another set of questions when one of his co-workers emerged from amongst the smouldering smoke and the sea of flashing red and blue, "Excuse me, Sergeant... someone is here to see you."

"Can it wait?" he asked.

"No, Sergeant... they say they have to get back to school soon."

Walker's expression became suddenly serious. "Oh..."

As he wandered off, Beck turned to his nearest aide. He was relieved the cop was occupied. They wouldn't make heads or tails of this, which was fine. It meant they could sweep this under the rug themselves. "Has anyone informed head office?"

The young man shook his head, "Don't believe so, sir."

Beck reached for his cellphone and began to walk away from where the wreckage and police were gathered. "Oh, this will be fun..." he hit a speed-dial number and held the tiny silver phone to his ear and waited for the voice on the other end. Moments later, he spoke. "Put me through to the chairman." A pause and then "Yeah.... tell him...." he glanced over his shoulder at the remnants of the car they were escorting. "We've got a Runaway..."

Nicely written, but I'm a bit confused about, other than an explosion, what just happened. Anyway, it's an interesting start, and I look foward to future parts.

Helix team gathering up new members, possibly?

A slight change of style is apparent. And I assume the "go to school" part implies the PPGs.

The tale "What I Have Left" will be important, I suppose...

And if you paid attention to finer details in Reunif, then that's a bonus.

Anyone seen JD?


You have now :)

Man, feels like forever since I saw a lot of this crowd. Good to see you all again, just like old times :)

To be truthful, I was surprised to see that Grid' has already put an entry up, our current progress being where it is.

Rest assured, I've been (I believe) doing my advisory job well. Grid' has passed along each of his entries to me (almost always as he's writing them) and I've given him feedback, suggestions, and stopped him when I worried that he was about to commit a plot cliche'.

I've even met instances of future plot occurrences that I so vehemently disagreed with some of the original outlooks were somewhat altered (I'm not talking about character fates, or anything utterly drastic, so don't waste time reading into it) however, I am not conflicting interests or arguing over what happens to favorite characters or things like that. I'd like to think I'm merely helping strengthen the fic's structure, not altering it to fit my own will. Normally when I help him, it's to rephrase wording, or ensure we're not rubbing a fact or foreshadowed event in the reader's face, or trying to rationalize something that laymen would likely see as logically flawed. I prefer to simply patch up, rather than impede on his creativity and suggest major plot developments myself.

Anyway, I look forward to continuing discussion here, and by no means will limit, though unfortunately, I'll not be offering impassioned predictions as I once did lol

Oh, and for those concerned, these events shown, the beginning of this new Saga, take place after Reunification, but long before "Better than This" (although I'm told "Better than This" isn't technically canon, but certainly before it COULD have happened).

"Did Lutin Robb testify?"

"No, he's still denying all involvement..." Walker shrugged, "He's asking for a better lawyer too..."

"How's he gonna afford that? With all the money he stole!?"

"Calm down Buttercup!"

"Hey, if the court wants evidence that he was there trying to knock off the central bank branch, tell 'em to look at the big fat bruise on his cheek!"

Walker chuckled "I'll keep you advised on that, alright? We got bigger issues, today."

The first girl who spoke put her hands on her hips, staring at the scene before her. The sea breeze wafted across from the bay, stirring her big red bow tie and ruffling the short hem of her skirt. Her long orange/brown hair danced behind her like a pretty cape, a giant red bow crowning her head. She only just came up to Walker's waist. She didn't have long here. They had to get back to class soon, for it was still school hours.

Blossom Utonium. Eight and a half years old.

"Bombing, I'd say... a big one."

"That was my guess too, but they're denying anything of the sort."

A timid voice asked, "Any... bodies in there?"

"Bubbles, you're such a wuss..." Buttercup scoffed.

"Just the drivers. No trace of any bodies in the storage area. No trace... of anything, really. Something that might have been a computer, but apart from that... nope. All gone in an instant."

Blossom pondered, "They had the bridge closed off... why was that?"

"They're not telling us anything, but it would appear that whatever they WERE carrying was of very high importance. Five escort cars, a security van, and the road all to themselves."

"Sounds like the government..." murmured Blossom.

"HEY!" screamed Buttercup, the dark-haired one. She stepped forward, the sea breeze tickling her mostly exposed legs. She hadn't had time to change out of the white shirt and green sports pants she had been wearing when they were called away, "What were you lot carrying out here!? Why would your car just explode! Tell me quick, I'm missing soccer cos of y-" she broke off, choking on her own breath before she broke into a fit of coughs, staggering backwards. Blossom steadied her.

"Easy, easy..."

One of the men in bluish shirts, resembling someone from an appliance store more than a government worker, chucked them a dismissive response, "We don't answer to little brats like you!"

Buttercup's emerald eyes grew brighter as her pupils dilated, "BRATS!?"

"Buttercup, stop being-"

Buttercup marched forward a few paces. "YOU GONNA CALL US BRATS!?" she kicked one of the burnt-out escort cars with the toe of her shoe. It promptly flew over the edge of the bridge and smashed into the water below.

Walker blinked, "What's with her?"

Bubbles quivered as her golden pigtails brushed her shoulders in the gentle, refreshing breeze. "She... really hates missing lunchtime soccer..."

Blossom snarled."Buttercup, knock it off. These people aren't to blame for what happened, anyway, so no point in getting mad at them."

Buttercup whirled, "THEY... CALLED...!" she sputtered again covering her mouth as she heaved through another fit of coughs. Blossom pulled her back toward the policeman as she cursed, "After... what we do for them..."

Bubbles shook her head, "You're not making your coughing any better by getting angry you know..."

Blossom looked up at Walker, "So what happens now?"

Walker shook his head, "Nothing. As far as we can see, this is just a terrible accident that resulted in four deaths and four write-offs. Nothing suspicious, but they're not telling us anything. Cause of death... bad timing and bad maintenance. Nothing criminal here."

Buttercup glared at Blossom, "Then we should get back before the bell rings!"

Blossom sighed, "If you hear anything-"

"I'll let you know, yeah. Can't let the three girls with their Stars of Induction miss out on this."

Buttercup frowned, "I don't even know where mine is anymore..."

Blossom gestured for her sisters to follow, "C'mon girls... we'll be late for science."

"YOU'LL be late for DEXTER!"

"Enough, Buttercup..."

The two of them sped off, bright streaks of pink and green in their wake. Bubbles stared at the remains of the security van a little longer. The acrid smell of scorched metal still hung in the air. Something didn't feel right about all of this... but who was she to know? There was no crime to be fought here. The action had been and gone. She turned to Walker. "Bye..." she murmured. Then she shot away as well into the afternoon blue.

Buttercup's a superhero, but that was some pretty extreme damage she suffered. Nobody can go through what she did without lasting effects. She's a lot better now, but that cough could be with her till her dying day, as far as anyone can tell... I could be wrong though.

Buttercup's a superhero, but that was some pretty extreme damage she suffered. Nobody can go through what she did without lasting effects. She's a lot better now, but that cough could be with her till her dying day, as far as anyone can tell... I could be wrong though.


then why do i get the feeling its gonna be important for some battle(s) in this saga?
Final Fantasy Forever!!!
Scarlet Spider: You know, before I joined, I thought Cybella was the most intelligent person on the board.
Narutodesu: Are you man enough to watch Clannad?!
Kathleen: if guys were made of chocolate i would be straight.
Scarlet Spider: I grew up watching porn.
Stricken: Everyone wants my cock.
Xagan: Do-it-yourself sodomy kits are not good ideas. Don't let your friends talk you into it.
