30072986460_9da2b5b167_t.jpg "Hello, Pombe."

20229736269_a60d4633bb_t.jpg "Danielle,"

30072986460_9da2b5b167_t.jpg "I take it you are well?"

20229736269_a60d4633bb_t.jpg "I'm still reeling from the sheer numbers lost in the war between Turkeys and Reindeer, to be honest. if only the two could arrive at a compromise regarding the disputed time period... I wish they could just get along." 

30072986460_9da2b5b167_t.jpg "Sure. Whatever. So, Anyways, we're going to be testing an experimental GATE drive today... One powered by... special... Octan employees. Employees such as yourself. Employees who display... advanced... Willpower... And you of all employees have demonstrated this trait repeatedly. So, I requested your assistance with our trials here. This is Project Birthday Boy."

20229736269_a60d4633bb_t.jpg "Cool!"

30072986460_9da2b5b167_t.jpg "Indeed. Now please... have a seat, sir."

20229736269_a60d4633bb_t.jpg "Don't mind if I do!"

30477501373_a49e9989fb_z.jpg

30072986460_9da2b5b167_t.jpg "now just let me hook up these wire to the back of your head..."

20229736269_a60d4633bb_t.jpg "Oh! Your hands are cold."

30072986460_9da2b5b167_t.jpg "Comfortable?"

20229736269_a60d4633bb_t.jpg "Not particularly..."

30072986460_9da2b5b167_t.jpg "That makes both of us."

20229736269_a60d4633bb_t.jpg "I might feel better if I took off these restrictive undergarments."

30072986460_9da2b5b167_t.jpg "Yeah, I'd rather you didn't."

20229736269_a60d4633bb_t.jpg "As you wish."

31140916822_4bc73d30a2_z.jpg

30072986460_9da2b5b167_t.jpg "Alright. Let's initiate the reactor. Here we go. Prometheus?"

31140916992_fae5bf8978_z.jpg

Prometheus: "Control room is 'Go'."

30072986460_9da2b5b167_t.jpg "ERT?"

ERT: "ERT is 'go'."

30072986460_9da2b5b167_t.jpg "Excellent.  Prometheus,  the status on the stabilizer array?"

Prometheus: "Stabilizer array performing at peak efficiency."

30072986460_9da2b5b167_t.jpg "Wonderful. Ok. Pombe, I would like you to do something for me...

20229736269_a60d4633bb_t.jpg "Yes?"

30477501713_bfa4ccf5f1_z.jpg

30072986460_9da2b5b167_t.jpg "I would like you to concentrate,  if you can, on opening and maintaining a rift, of sorts. I want you to... create a fissure in time and space."

20229736269_a60d4633bb_t.jpg "Ok!" 

30072986460_9da2b5b167_t.jpg "Prometheus,  Activity the emitters."

Prometheus: "I've never seen anything like it. it's like they have a life of their own! Overhead Capacitors to one oh five percent. One one oh. One two seven. Doctor,  this is highly irregular! "

30072986460_9da2b5b167_t.jpg "You're telling me."

Prometheus: "The phase arrays are completely anomalous.  at this rate... we may..."

30072986460_9da2b5b167_t.jpg "Shut it down. NOW!"

Prometheus: "I... can't. The streams... they're crossing." 

30072986460_9da2b5b167_t.jpg "Impossible!"

30477501673_b5fed5a720_z.jpg

30072986460_9da2b5b167_t.jpg "Evacuate!"

31248882916_c59a70a709_z.jpg

30072986460_9da2b5b167_t.jpg "My gods... what have we done. Pombe! What are you?!"

Prometheus: "Emergency shutdown Failure. Ejection... Failure."

30072986460_9da2b5b167_t.jpg "fuck."

I looked.

This was an insanely risky move! Didn't you read my warnings?

Do you have any idea what you could have done?

 

But anyways, Updated now! :grin:

I looked too but luckily I didn't get sucked into the vortex. Great story. How did you take those low-light shots? They came out beautifully.

You were lucky, I'd say. :wink: Thanks! My sister has a rather bright light that I borrowed. Also, in one scene

I used Flickr to increase darkness, and decreased the warmth of the picture, artificially creating a darker appearance to the photo. I'm so glad you enjoyed the photos. I was feeling self-conscious about them, actually. :blush:

Glad I've been keeping you entertained! It's great to have a fan! :grin: To answer your question... just barely! :laugh: I've been making this for the past 2 weeks actually. These two builds were kinda fillery. Although the first definitely highlighted the characters well. I've also been planning this series for over half a year, so that helps me keep on schedule too. I plan builds weeks/months in advance, and after a year and a half of AG, I've gotten pretty good at setting realistic goals, and devising backups in case I can't finish a build on time.  

Finals are definitely impending though. I think I'll manage though. 

 

Also, two things. While the Yes! song in the "To be Continued" link is indeed a reference to the meme, I also just like Yes! and more of their songs can be expected in my stories eventually. Other thing is that this delightful build is directly related to mine, in case it wasn't obvious. :wink:
