Welcome back to Time Crash. This is the third episode of an interactive story, where people from different times and places have come together due to a distortion in dimensions. What happens to them... well, it's up to you readers.

In the last episode, the five characters that got the least votes were condemned to be killed off in this episode. The same formula continues in each episode, although the amount will vary. This episode's first poll determines the three characters with the least number of votes that will be exterminated in the upcoming fourth episode. Also remember that the characters that get the most votes will be featured prominently in the next episode. You should notice the one new character, Rhodos from ancient Phoenicia, joining the cast, as well.

The other two polls specifies which actions you want the groups of survivors to do next. After this episode, the survivors are in two large groups, because last time the majority of you opted to gather the survivors around. Just read on to see how it all happens...

*****

Posted ImageBob, the Paramedic (Postmodern Time ~ Australia, 1990 AD)
Posted ImageParker, the Schoolboy (Postmodern Time ~ Australia, 1990 AD)
Posted ImageRhodos, the Aspiring Poet (Antiquity ~ Phoenicia, 1100 BC)
Posted ImageYwen, the Maiden (Middle Ages ~ Scotland, 1300 AD)

Rhodos was confused. In one moment, he was doing his patrol duties which he fervently hated, and in another he was transported to this hellish landscape where nothing made sense. All he knew was that he wasn’t in Phoenicia anymore.

He was still standing on a piece of the wall encircling the perimeters of his hometown, but the town was gone now, as was the familiar salty taste of the sea in the wind.

Below the wall, he saw an intimidating wagon of iron protruding from solid rock, and three strangers who spoke in an unfamiliar language. Invaders! Spies! Hostiles! The words that the captain of the guard so often used rang in Rhodos’ mind. He knew it was his duty to protect the town, even though the town was nowhere to be seen.
Posted Image
Rhodos never wanted to be a guard. He would’ve much rather become a famous poet or a great philosopher. But his family was too poor to send him to Athens or the islands to learn those trades, so he had had to take the only job available for a young man like him.

His hands were shaking as he raised his bow and arrow. He had never actually shot a living target before, so he didn’t know if he could drive the spies away. But he had to try.

“Halt, intruders!” Rhodos shouted at the three people below him. His voice broke. He was faced with a young woman, a small boy and a man. They raised their arms and shouted something at him. They looked desperate.

No, they weren’t spies. They must be refugees, stranded on this frightening place just like him. He relaxed his bow, but his hands were slippery with sweat.

The arrow was released by accident. It flew in a beautiful arch, landing square at the young woman’s chest. The orange-haired woman’s eyes widened and she fell to her back, undoubtedly dead.
Posted Image
Rhodos slapped his hand on his mouth. The man and the boy looked at him in horror, and ran away. Rhodos sat down against the parapet and started to cry.

Posted ImageAshton, the Lord (Victorian Era ~ United Kingdom, 1880 AD)
Posted ImageEleanor, the Prostitute (Victorian Era ~ United Kingdom, 1880 AD)
Posted ImageFerid, the Assassin (Ancient Middle-East ~ Persian Empire, 200 BC)
Posted ImageMatthew, the Doctor (Postmodern Time ~ Australia, 1990 AD)

Anne sat up from her stretchers. She felt healthy enough to walk already, Dr. Matthew was just fussing. Right now the good doctors focus was on the corpse of the Iranian or Arabian or whatever-ian man. It wasn’t surprising to find dead people in a ruined neighborhood like this. Anne couldn’t fathom why the ambulance had brought them there, or why they had awoken in a cave.

Anne took a moment to observe the other people they had ran into. There was the dark-clad gloomy man that was obviously acquainted with the dead person, and a couple who looked like they were coming from a fancy-dress party.
Posted Image
Maybe they had interrupted the filming of a movie or a television series! Anne couldn’t wait to get back home to tell Tara, her gossip-loving neighbor, all about this. Anne wasn’t one to gossip much herself, she just shared information.

“I’m sorry, but there is nothing I can do”, Dr. Matthew said shaking his head as he had done researching the body.

At that moment an ominous rumble came from the roof above the entrance of the derelict house. In a matter of seconds, a huge chunk of the roof came tumbling down on them. Everything was covered in dust.

Anne, who’s stretchers were a little further from the house, remained unharmed. As the dust settled, she saw the sinister man cowering next to him, and the fancily-dressed man lying next to a mount of rubble that had been the entrance of the house. To her shock, Anne saw a hand of a woman sticking out amidst the rubble.
Posted Image
“Eleanor! No, no, no!” the fair-haired man screamed, and started digging the mount. “No, I can’t lose you now! I can’t lose the baby that grows inside you! You’re all I have…” The man’s strength waned out quickly, and he fell on top of the rubble, sobbing desperately.

Tears filled Anne’s eyes as she realized that Dr. Matthew - the man that had taken care of him since she first got sick – was gone as well. This was no movie set, she knew now. She turned to look the dark man next to him.

“Who’s going to take care of me now?” she asked him in despair, grabbing his cape. He looked her in the eyes, but quickly turned his gaze away.

“Auntie Anne!” a clear voice shouted behind them all of a sudden. Anne turned to look, and saw the ambulance driver and a little boy he knew well. It was Parker, the shy boy from her neighborhood that she had looked after many times. Her heart filled with hope again.

Posted ImageJeremiah, the Old Pirate (Pirate Age ~ Caribbean Sea, 1700 AD)
Posted ImageRosette, the Pirate (Pirate Age ~ Caribbean Sea, 1700 AD)
Posted ImageSantiago, the Lieutenant (Pirate Age ~ Caribbean Sea, 1700 AD)
Posted ImageUhla, the Shamaness (Prehistoric Era ~ Oceania, 8000 BC)

Their cutlasses clashed against each other yet again. Rosette knew that Lieutenant Santiago was physically stronger than her, but he couldn’t match the fencing techniques that she had learned from her late father Jasper. The two rivals danced the dance of death in the sand, knowing all too well that the other must die for the other to live.
Posted Image
Rosette was so intensively caught up in the duel that she didn’t even notice when the islander woman climbed down the rock she had been standing on and rushed to the shoreline, where Old Jeremiah was struggling with the net that was about to drown him. With remarkable strength, the islander pulled the net to the beach, and Jeremiah along with it.
Posted Image
“Stop, you two!” the old man croaked as he spat sea water out of his lungs. “Can’t you fools see that this isn’t the old Caribbean we’re at anymore?!”

Rosette and the lieutenant both ceased the duel, but kept staring at each other. Jeremiah limped in between them with his pegleg, while the native woman stood back and watched them. Jeremiah grabbed Rosette from the shoulders.

“Girl, didn’t your father teach you anything? Survival first! You can revenge Jasper later, but now we have to find out where we’ve stranded.”

The old pirate was the voice of reason, as always. He had been that to her father, and now he was that to Rosette. She looked past Jeremiah to the lieutenant.
Posted Image
“Truce, for now?” she asked. Santiago’s eyes narrowed, as he contemplated if a pirate could be trusted. He definitely knew better than that.

“For now”, the young officer finally said. The situation they were in had gotten him all fuddled up as well.

Rosette looked around. The sea was gone. The sky was gone. There was just this piece of land surrounded by an infinite emptiness. Rosette felt shudders running down her spine.

“There’s no point in staying here. Let’s go look for food. I’m starving!” she said with a relaxed laughter. There was no fear that a little laugh couldn’t drive away, her father had always said.

Posted ImageThurbaldr, the Viking (Viking Age ~ North Atlantic, 1000 AD)
Posted ImageTrigger, the Bandit (Wild West ~ USA, 1840 AD)

Trigger kept pointing his revolver at the bastard who called himself a sheriff. How dared he gunpoint Cougar Claw, who was completely without blame to the crimes Trigger had committed?

“Trigger!” the princess of the Lakota tribe, his lover, cried. “My father… He’s not breathing!”
Posted Image
At that moment Trigger saw a change in Sheriff Northfalk’s stiff posture. Trigger’s reflexes were fast, but so were the sheriff’s.

Two gunshots pierced the air at almost the exact same time. But someone had been ahead of both the bandit and the sheriff. The hulking warrior had thrown himself on Cougar Claw, and Northfalk’s bullet rebounded from his thick metal helmet without doing any damage.

Northfalk himself fell to his side with a bullet hole in his temple. The tension was over.
Posted Image
Trigger ran to the crying Cougar Claw and the warrior who still held her. The girl ran to the bandit’s arms. Trigger looked at the warrior and smiled.

“Thank you.”

The warrior smiled back, and nodded. Trigger realized that the man didn’t really understand his words, but understood what he said.

Suddenly another man rose from behind the weird mount of snow that had appeared out of nowhere. The man was clad in a military uniform and was carrying a gun.

“Do not vorry, I am not enemy”, the soldier said with a strong accent. “My name is Sergei. Vat is yours?”

“Trigger”, the bandit replied. “And this is Cougar Claw. Dunno ‘bout that guy.”

The soldier called Sergei turned to the big, red-bearded man. “Navn?”

“Ah!” the man exclaimed as he recognized the word. “Thurbaldr!”

“Good, ve are all introdjuced nov”, Sergei said with a thin smile. Trigger had seen that smile before, and he did not like it.

Together the men put the bodies of Northfalk and Chief Dancing Mountain into one of the boats. Cougar Claw fetched the oil lamp from the shack, and they sprinkled some oil on the bodies and lit the boat on fire.

As they watched the modest funeral pyre, two groups of people came to them, attracted by the flames. The other group consisted of three men, a small boy and an older woman pushed in a bed with wheels, and the other had two women, a soldier with a plumed hat and an old man with a long beard. Trigger wondered how many other people there were in this strange place.

Posted ImageXETA, the Android (Space Age ~ Earth’s Orbit, 2200 AD)
Posted ImageZhu Que, the Mystic (Mysterious Orient ~ Ming Dynasty China, 1500 AD)

Dereq wasn’t as fascinated by the android calling himself XETA as the explorer Vanya was. Dereq was sad for losing his trusted Starduck, but he was also anxious to get away from this nightmarish place.

The captain was used to the freedom of the endless space. He had seen strange worlds that stretched the boundaries of human imagination before, but he had always been able to escape those places. Now he was stuck, and he didn’t like that one bit.

An annoying noise made him look back at the smoking remains of his spacecraft.

“Uh, I don’t think we should stay here for long”, he said to Vanya. Crashed spaceships can be very fickle, if you catch my drift.”

“But what about those two up there?” the explorer asked and pointed at the two oriental people peeking down from the tall pagoda. The lower floor of the building was completely crashed, so there was no way down from the upper floor.

The young girl in the pagoda asked them something in Chinese, but Dereq just shrugged. He couldn’t understand a word she had said.

“I can translate”, the android suddenly said with a wide smile. “She asked: ‘Can you help us?’”

“Wow! How do you know that?” Vanya asked, even more excited than before. I picked you up from the other side of the galaxy! How can you know how to speak both English and Chinese?”

“Simple. I can talk in every language of the Earth”, XETA answered sincerely. “Do you wish to reply to that girl?”

“Uh, yes…” Dereq said, thinking of a way to get the girl and the old codger down. “Tell her to jump from the edge of the roof. I’ll catch.”
Posted Image
XETA translated his words, and the girl nodded. She said something to the old man, who pointed her to go first. Then the girl crept to the edge of the roof, flung herself over it and hung at the edge a while before dropping down to Dereq’s arms. The old man did the same, although with much more care than the young girl.

The Chinese introduced themselves through XETA as Zhu Que and Huang. As they conversed about where they had been stranded, Dereq started to appreciate the android’s abilities. From the corner of his eye, the captain saw Vanya observing the android’s every move with great curiosity.

“Listen, we have to get away from that machine”, Dereq finally said. “It might go boom any minute now.”

Zhu Que nodded after hearing XETA’s translation, and together the five of them slid down from the hill where the Spaceduck had crash-landed. They soon ran into two very sinister figures: a woman with skulls in her black dress and her guardian who was wearing a heavy black armor. Vanya instantly hid behind Dereq’s back.
Posted Image
“It’s them! They think I’m the bride of Satan or something”, Vanya whispered to Dereq’s ear.

All of a sudden, the witchy woman and the knight knelt before them.

“Our Lord of Darkness! We are at your servitude!” the woman said, and raised her zealous eyes at XETA.

There's a small enouggh cast that I'll write a sentence about each of them.

Bob - Did nothing this episode.  Unless he gains a character fast, he's dead to me.  No vote.

Parker - If he didn't know Anne, I'd kill him off, but since he does I can't let him go.  Got a vote.

Rhodos - Bores me, but I almost vorted from him to see how he evolves.  Still... No vote.

Anne - Killing me with the gossiping and the cats, but a dying woman interests me, and I think she'll bring a good angle to the story.  I also want to see her interact with Ferid.  Got a vote.

Ashton - Will bring another interesting topic to the story, and I want to see if he gets past Eleanor.  Got a vote.

Ferid - Storie's Bad megablocks.  Besies, he's the only one left with the language barrier, and I want to see him and Anne interact.  Got a vote.

Rosette and Lt. - Want to see if they'll really get past they're differences.  Got votes.

Jeremiah - Voice of Reason.  Got a vote.

Uhla - Again, bores me, but i almost voted or her, she may be interesting.  I really liked her intro... but...  No vote.

Couger Claw - Oh!  Trigger loves her!  Does she do anything else?  No.  No vote.

Sergei - The perfect villian.  He's on a good team, but still evil.  Voted for the same reasons as last time.  Got a vote.

Thurbladr - Other resident Bad megablocks, and possibly my new favorite character.  Got a vote.

Trigger - The Hero.  Got a vote.

Dereq - Same as last time.  Got a vote.

ghast - Since Morrigan is alive, adds zero to the story.  Buh bye. No vote.

Huang - Like her for reasons unkown.  I liked that she was a saved orphan, seems cruel to kill her now.  Got a vote.

Morrigan - EVIL!!!! Want her to slowly relieze that she's tricked.  Kinda an idiot right now, but soon... well, if she doesn't smart up, she's out, but until then... Got a vote.

Vanya - Wus, but she's cool and smart.  Got a vote.

Xeta - Don't like him personally, but his unwanted leadership could be cool if he ever picks a side.  Got a vote.

Zhu - Wise man.  He's cool.  Got a vote.

Now, for the choices.  I don't want Xeta's group to split up and move around, so they'll be building a camp.  I wan to see Xeta react with others, and Morrigan to react with others too.

Trigger's group, i think, would be the most likely to explore.. so I vote that.

Now, here's some things I'd be really interested to see.

1)  Love triangle.  Thurbladr loves no one, Couger loves TB and Trigger, and Trigger loves Couger and hates TB, even though they're really good guys.

2)  Xeta's struggle with power, and Morrigan's slow relazation that she's with good people.  She'll stay with them but try to kill them off.

3)  Ferid and Anne interact.  Ferid is a killer, Anne is sick.  He could start to feel remorse.  Interesting idea, especially with the language barriers between them.

Nice work, and only five deaths, only one of which I really didn't want!

Thanks, Zepher, your analyses are always a pleasure to read! :wink: It's great to have a devoted reader, too.

Just wondering, was the character you didn't want to die perhaps Eleanor? Or Dr. "Named after the actor of Jack from Lost" Matthew?

For the next episode, there will definitely be new MOCs for the pictures (I'm trashing all the others except the one with the Viking ship), so I don't think I can get the next episode up in a week like I did with this one. So the polls will remain open for at least two weeks, I reckon.

So there's plenty of time to vote, but at this point, it seems the women are in the weakest spots. If you want to learn more about the ladies, just vote for them.

Phew, I really dodged a bullet there, because I completely forgot to vote in the second episode but luckily all my faves are still safe.
I don't know why, because I'm quite a good guy, but I'm really rooting for the baddies here; Sergei, Ferid, I'd like to see them team up and then there'd be trouble  :devil: .
It would be interesting though if Ferid couldn't communicate with anyone and just slowly evolved into a compassionate character after seeing Anne's suffering, that or kill her, one of the two....

Oh and I know that XETA helps the story move along by letting the characters cross the language barrier, but it all seems a bit too perfect if you know what I mean, alien technology that knows all about Earth? I think this need some explaination, maybe he (it?) should get damaged and lose some of his memory, just an idea, cos he interests me so I still want him in.

Overal, I'm liking the inclusion of a new character, Rhodos, because it means that some far flung THX 1138 or post-apoc character might just be possible!  :wink:
I need a better camera, to photograph Lego, but I need to buy more Lego so I have something good to photograph, darn I can't win...

There's actually an explanation to why he knows all the languages, but that's part of the overarching story, so it'll be revealed in due time. So don't worry, XETA's not just a cheap plot device to cross the language barrier. :wink:

Just bumping the topic to tell the current situation with the poll. For a while it looked like only the predetermined three characters would be killed off, but now the number has climbed to five because of tied votes. At the moment, the characters that will be killed off in the next episode would seem to be Anne, Cougar Claw, Ghast, Morrigan and Parker.

But there's still plenty of time to vote, so if your favorite is among that group, you still have a chance to save them! :wink:

I'm also thinking about adding two new characters to the mix in the next episode. The other one is familiar from the introductory images in the first episode, while the other one is a character that one of you readers wished to see.

Looks like your lobbying worked, Zepher. We now have a solid three characters that will be eliminated in the next episode, so I'm going to officially close the poll.

The characters leaving the story in the next episode will be:
- Ashton, the Lord
- Morrigan, the Witch
- Parker, the Schoolboy

The main focus of the next episode will be on:
- Sergei, the Commander
- Thurbaldr, the Viking
- XETA, the Android

Finally, Trigger's group will split up to build a base camp and explore the surroundings, while Dereq's group will remain stationary and build a camp of their own.

How will these results and the two new characters affect the outcome of the story? Stay tuned for Episode 4 released later this week to find out...

Very sorry Sandy, I had completely forgotten to reply to this, I went to yesterday but didn't have time. Anyway, well done at advancing the story, I was worried that the character's deaths might come off as really forced but you definitely managed to make the deaths feel like a natural result of the confusion. I feel really bad for killing that doctor now, Anne is going to be a bit worse off now. I like Rhodos too, he seems like a nice interesting character, though I can't say much for his control over the bow!

The Western situation was great too, I liked the Viking Thurbaldr's involvement, as well as Sergei's part. And thank goodness those guys are dead now!

The best bit was Xeta being used as a translator for Zhu Que and Huang, and then being worshiped by the witch and knight as the devil!  :laugh:  

Great job overall Sandy, I'm really interested now in where the western story and Xeta story are going. Keep up the excellent work and I'll try to post sooner next time!

Batbrick Away!  :devil:

I've already written it, and I'm about to start building some new MOCs for it. After that, I still need to photograph and edit the pictures, but I'm hoping I can get all this done by Sunday. So the next episode will be up in a matter of days, I suppose.

And boy, will it be a gruesome one! :tongue:

You said only three deaths :O

Beats on Ferid killing at least someone.

Any way, I'll be away this week, only reason I was wondering.  Leave the polls open to at least Saturday night of next week  :wink:

There will still be three deaths, they're just more brutal than before. :wink:

Don't worry, you'll have plenty of time to vote. I probably won't even get the next episode up until next week, anyway.

I didn't comment on your time crash story before, But I really like it^^ with your polls it reminds me "les livres dont vous êtes le héro" ( books which you are the hero ) some old books where you can choose what the characters will do next to arrive to a final outcome!

and I have to say that both the pictures and mocs you did for this story are really great ^^ awesome work Sandy !  :thumbup:
