E6S2- Kona Hut - A, I, N, TK, Ty
[OOC: OK, in accordance with the OOC thread discussion, we'll move forward with a new storyline until Todd returns.]

SPLASH PAGE TITLE: In The Mean Time...
Time Keeper:
"Re-calibration complete." Tempus Fugitive blurs into hyperspeed motion, riding the wave of temporal energy you reflected back at him, "rolling with the punch" rather than attempting to stand against it. He lunges forward, arms outstretched toward Todd and Ian's surfer-dude host. As he lays hands on both their shoulders, there is a wrenching twist in the space-time continuum!

"One of you is my target, the other meaningless. But I don't have time to choose..." The time streams twist and coil, forming a wormhole. Tempus Fugitive is operating with far more energy than he can normally access, thanks to your efforts. An expression of shock crosses his features. "Calculation failure! Overshooting..." And then the three of them vanish!

Ian:
It happens instantaneously, with a duration of nanoseconds--but the image, blurred by the limits of your host's visual cortex, is indelible in your mind: Tempus Fugitive and Todd and your host, frozen like statues as time twists around you. Light flashes, strobing as the sun sets and rises. The buildings of Akamai City unbuild themselves, leaving white coral. A tidal splash eradicates even that, and you hover over a choppy sea. The light becomes a dull glow, the flashing imperceptible. The ocean dries, leaving volcanic land. A fireball leaps from the horizon, flame leading the way and you realize that you are seeing a meteor strike in reverse. The land is lush now, green with fern-trees...

The T.U.N.A. can only maintain a host-link for nanoseconds under this sort of strain. The link fails, and you are jolted back into the warm surf and your own body. But that last image, the mad growth of greenery. It looked familiar; it looked like images from your school lessons, when you learned about the mysteries of the surface world.

Nereid, Angelfish, Ty'daal:
It happens faster than you can see. One instant, the man from the future was standing on top of the car, the next instant he, and Ian's host, and Todd are gone!

SPLASH PAGE TITLE: Look for the continuing adventures of Todd in Don't Cross the Time Streams: the Return of Tempus Fugitive!

No! TODD!

Nereid desperately attempts to link her mind with her colleague and friend.

Nereid sinks to her knees overcome with sadness.

Nereid:
The haywire electronics around and inside the Kona Hut are beginning to shut down, leaving only the showering sparks from the electrical junction box. One of the things returning to normal must be cell phone reception; your cell phone rings!

"Nereid? It's Beeline--there's trouble at Kuakini General! I could use some help, here..."

Time keeper is staggered by the pure energy this man possesses, where he himself worked in harmony with the time streams this future person was using technology to rip it apart for his own ends.

Time keeper could feel time itself scream in pain. The master of time grabbed the streams attempting to stop the other leaving with his two prisoners but the pain in the stream had stunned it and it reacted slowly to his requests. All he managed to to was send a burst of time at the man as he jumped and heard the destinctive electronics voice of his machine state " .. Calculation failure, overshooting....." Just as they blinked out of time.

TK stepped back into the present, for better or worse he'd managed to knock their jump off target, hoping that it would give the team some time to be able to locate their friends but even now he could feel the time stream repairing the rip in its fabric.....this was not going to be easy or quick but he swore an oath that as master of time he would not rest until he had found a trace of their time signatures and brought his friends home

In reply to Amm-Fibian (msg # 64):

OOC: Did not want to move the plot forward until everyone had their melodramatic, we lost TODD moment. (Which I loved how the posts ended up flowing. Nereid was followed by Time Keeper and the melodrama was building and then comes Ian and his "panel" was so low key...I loved it.

But I don't want this post to rob Ty'daal and Angelfish of their own spotlight, ham it up my friends.

 



Oh no, we are on our way. Hang on and don't get killed or anything. Nereid keeps Beeline on the line as she looks at the others.

Friends we have another spot of trouble over at Kuakini General...these bad guys have no respect for feelings...we should get 2-3 days off to deal with losing our friend...we really need a union.

One minute, Angelfish is attempting to evade Tempus Fugitive's timewave, the next, she is sprawled on the sand blinking as if at an afterimage from a bright flash of light...

What tha...

Where... where'd they go??!

TODD?  Ian?!


She scrambles to her feet and races toward Time Keeper, sand slipping beneath her boots, frantically typing a message...

"Im not sure. He tried to time travel with our friends, all i could do was send a ripple after him and knock him off target. Sadly i couldn't be to accurate and they have ended up  somewhere else in time." Time keeper looked tired " i promise you i will use all my powers to track them down and get our friends back "

Ty'daal stood quietly, seemingly unemotional at the odd turn of events. He did not have worry for his aquatic compatriot, he had seen him possess enough humans to realize the hero was somewhere nearby. Todd, on the other hand he knew really only from their last team mission- however he was strong, perhaps even more so than himself, he would survive. He was a warrior, no strange powers or magic would stop him, of that he was sure.

Continuing to ponder the events while looking at the sky through the water, Amm-Fibian says, "I have no doubt Todd's punching ability will suit him well no matter the time period he has found himself. My hosts surfing ability may not hold up as well."

Nereid:
Beeline tries to give you a bit more information. "A patient came in through Emergency, bitten by some kind of poisonous snake. The doctors tried something from our antivenin supplies, but it made things worse. He's changing. Kind of like what happened with me and the bees, only weirder. I could use some backup here..." Just as he says that, there's a loud crash, and the call drops!

Ian:
You find some comfort in the thought that the surfer will have Todd as a protector, whenever they ended their time-jaunt. The last glimpse you had through your host's eyes was eerily reminiscent of the land-based plants of your own time. If so, the two of them would be the only homo sapiens on Earth in that era; "Tempus Fugitive" being an artificial body containing the mental engrams of a member of the species homo futuris, of course.

"Well, someone should hurry across town and have a look into this snake-man situation. Do we know this Beeline? Anyway, I'll stay here in the water and give helpful advice such as 'do not get bitten' and of course what to do when one inevitably gets bitten."

"On my way" said Time Keeper as he reached out and wrapped the time stream round him. In a blur he surfed the time waves at full speed until he came to rest at the hospital where Beeline had sent his last communication from

Ty'daal gave a grim half-smile, a surprisingly warm expression for him, and began pulling water from the ocean into a long, thin strip of water. "Ladies, if you wish I can transport you there," he spoke, stepping onto the surface of water.

(I imagine this as Ice Man style, the water arching above the city as the teammates who need transport ride along. If this is beyond what he could do, please let me know and I can alter my post.)

"I can certainly try, my friend," the warrior spoke swirling his hands around drawing a 'pod' of water upwards towards the back of the water rail.

"No one is left behind while I am around, Amm-Fibian," the warrior spoke, drawing on his inner strength to channel the water forwards to create the sphere for the aquatic bound hero to ride in while he waited for the others to climb on the sled behind him.

Ok, since this is a reset I'd be at 3/4 determination again I believe.

Ty'daal:
[OOC: I've got your base Determination at 3 after your most recent rebuild, but I'll double check.]
Arcing up and over the streets of Akamai City, your wave surges inland! Water-born, you ride the curl with ease, guiding the flow and feeling the pull of the tides. Nereid is almost as secure in her footing as you are, balancing with the easy grace of a surfer. Angelfish is cruising within the arc of your wave, just ahead of the sphere of water containing Amm-Fib'ian.

Ian:
The view from up here is spectacular! For the first time, you see Akamai City from the perspective from which you saw your home city--as if you were swimming between her towers. The humans have much to learn about efficient city planning, but their efforts are not without a certain charm. The abrupt elevation changes, such as the one between the ground-level park below you and the vertical cliff-face of Kuakini General Hospital directly ahead are quite jarring aesthetically.

Speaking of jarring; you calculate the speed of your approach to the building's wall, and consider the incompressibility of water as a factor of impact dynamics...
