Condition Green! [PFF, Epilogue Phase]

Postby Loweko on Sat Mar 08, 2003 6:10 pm

Welcome back, fellow Boardies. It's been a while...

I'm sure most of the Board are aware of PFF etiquette and procedure by now, and since we even have Luis's highly useful Persona Site, a simple post, PM, email or tap on the shoulder on IRC will suffice if you want to be in it. I pride myself on being open to all, although I do ask people to acknowledge that I may warp descriptions for practical or plot reasons as much as anything else. EDIT: if you're not on the persona site, paste your profile in here.

This fic will tie up the huge great unused plot thread created by the ending of Green Eyes, tie up the OTHER huge unused plot thread at the end of WDWHH...but will actually have a plot of it's own, don't worry. As ever, I will try to ensure no prior explanation of the Boardieverse is necessary for people who haven't read my other fics...but read them anyway, flattery is never amiss.

Without furthur ado...

Whoa.

Excellent. Positively...excellent. You've captured the essence of the Servant realm very well.

Looking forward to the rest.

This should be fun... another somebody with some experience with the Dude in the Depths.

(And who poked Hazel when she entered the service of the Boards? If nobody yet, let me, please!)

Oh, yes, and I'm definitely game for this. The Nemo base should be interesting, since it's Silver's second-favorite element. (And I wonder what's going on down there... and whether I have an M-Division lab.)

Eee! Putmeinputmeinputmein! ... :oops: Okay, perhaps I'm just a little overenthusiastic.

Would this be a bad time to point out that I've never read Green Eyes? The idea of slogging through the massive backlog of Low-fic that predates my time is tempting, but I'm afraid I just don't have a free month or so. Soon...

Green Eyes, (Or "The Green-Eyed Monster, to use it's full title) is probably not my best PFF, but essentially detailed what happened when a MST video (at the time, the Roomie comment MSTs were at their height) sent to Mike fell into the hands of his mother, who sought revenge for her portrayal in them. The result, supergun subplot aside, was much mayhem and chaos. In the end the Board fired the BIP at her (it's first appearance) set to Planet-Wide Destruction. A little meddling at the last minute ensured she merely caught enough energy to warrant recruiting her as a Boardie.

Condition Green! will be what happens next...

Oh, and Tangent? Since Millions to One is not really part of the continuity (it was designed to be the first half of a two-parter with JustBob, but he left and took all the notes with him), you don't have to be engaged to dear Hazel Green if you don't want to.

Looks interesting. Feel free to include my character, but I don't mind if you decide I haven't been around long enough to guage my personality...

PS: FINALLY got back onto this forum, after setting up two new accounts which never got around to sending confirmation emails... Any poking will be considered analogous to rubbing salt into the wounds, and will be responded to appropriately... and violently.

And a little prequel vignette, inspired by Flax after I read 'Green-Eyed Monster'.

-----
Location: Midland, TX, United States, Midland International Airport, Hangar C3.

Time: Present day, seven hours previous


Deep in a long-abandoned hangar on the outskirts of a west Texas airport, an eletromechanical chattering emainated. To someone snooping around, this would have been a source of great curiosity. But not a soul came near this hangar anymore, abandoned for nearly 20 years. Actually, a single soul inhabited it, but not a living soul. Right now, that soul stood over a teletype machine in the combined living space and office built into one corner of the massive hangar, which housed a slowly decaying Curtiss C-46 Commando with a very checkered past.

The layer of chalky high desert dust on the teletype, the floors, the C-46 and every flat surface was completely undisturbed. The figure leaning on the ancient machine was leaving no marks on the thick layer of dust, and not a single mark on the floor marked the passage of his heavy black flight boots. Bulbs sat lifeless in fixtures, a television in the corner of the office hadn't displayed a picture in 20 years, the stove had no propane running to it, and the fridge sat cocked half-open, empty. A phone sat on the desk with its reciever off the cradle, no sound eminating from the earpiece.

The teletype had been in this hangar since it was built. Untold reams of paper had passed through its guts in its lifetime. Right now, the teletype was banging away for all it was worth, and no paper was coming out, at least, none visible to those whose minds were still bound to the physical plane. The power cord sat wound up on the floor next to the ancient machine, cloth fraying off in spots, insulation worn...even if it had been plugged in, no power would have coursed through the fire marshall's nightmare of a conduit.

A.J. Hunt watched as his orders came through the teletype. Paper spilled out of the output tray in its top, and he took up the slack with one hand while scratching his chin with the other. The machine finally stopped its posessed labor and fed a few inches of blank paper out. Hunt tore the feed across the built in cutter, and walked over to the couch set against the wall. He sat down, making no impression in the rotting leather cushion and raising no dust. He leaned back, crossed an ankle over a knee, and began reading the etheral dispatch.

---

ORDERS FOR PM SERVANT #9971, ADAR I 14TH, 5763

PROCEED BY FAMILIAR SPIRIT 'CAN OPENER', P-47 HV*H, BUAERO 4085598, TO BOARD ORGANISATION SEABASE NEMO, SOUTH PACIFIC SECTION 10. ASSISTANCE OF SERVANT 9971 AND 61ST FS HAS BEEN REQUESTED. REPORT TO GEN. GABRESKI AND COL. JOHNSON AT SQUADRON OPS 1000 HOURS FOR BRIEFING. RENDEZVOUS WITH CONTACT LAUNDREAU UPON ARRIVAL AND ASSIST IN CURRENT OPERATIONS AS REQUESTED BY BOARD UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. BOARD HAS INTERCEPT FORCE OF 3 CRAFT PATROLLING AREA - DO NOT FIRE UPON. TIME OF RENDEZVOUS SCHEDULED FOR 1500 HOURS.

GODSPEED

END TRANSMISSION

---

Hunt grinned widely. This would be a welcome break from his usual routine of guardian, subtley influencing the thoughts, actions and environments of the living to facilitate the Boss' will. A welcome vacation, if one could call it that, since he'd still be working...but working with the Board seemed, for some reason, to be more pleasure than business. It was a shame the opportunity came so rarely...only once in the past 3 years had Hunt interacted with the Board, and the organization had been quite different then, being in its fledgling form.

Hunt folded the dispatch in two, and stood, letting the paper fall from his fingers. The slip of etheral material disentegrated into nothingness before touching anything.

Hunt turned around and walked directly through the couch, through the wall of the office, and into the hangar's shop space. He gazed up at the C-46 with a half-smile.

"Shame you and I don't do any runs anymore, dear. But duty calls." A.J. reached up and fingered the underside of the once-gleaming Commando's wing. A small portion of aluminum shone brightly where A.J. touched the tired lady of the air. He felt the cool touch of metal for just a moment, and then withdrew his hand, his ritual done. He turned toward the hangar's massive front doors and walked out of the building, through wood and glass, the doors sealed forever. As he walked to the edge of the tarmac, his clothing faded from the comfortable jeans and 'Hunt's Air Services' t-shirt to a more utilitarian ensemble: A flight suit, leather jacket, and scarf. Weapons faded in from the ether; a vintage katana slung over his right shoulder, a pair of single-action revolvers in a belt rig, a small bone-handled hunting knife strapped onto on of the still-present calf-height flight boots.

Hunt put two fingers two his mouth and whistled loudly. A flash lit up the deserted and weed-ridden taxiway that had fallen into disuse after the larger runways meant to handle passenger jets had been built. A rift opened in the fabric of the spiritual plane, an open maw of pure blackness. A blue streak flashed through the gaping hole, and the hole closed with another flash and a sucking sound. SkyeII, Hunt's familiar spirit, rolled to a stop in front of him and opened her door. The little blue '32 Ford coupe rumbled with perfect precision, not a single miss. A.J. stepped in. Safety belts snaked around him with a mind of their own and connected themselves. Skye's flathead V8 roared through open exhaust pipes and the tiny car catapulted herself forward on her own accord with a speed far greater than the best speed shops of the hot rod industry had ever dreamed possible. Jesus certainly had built this hot rod.

Another rift opened in front of the hurtling blue streak, and as the void of the rift closed around the two beings, A.J. said to Skye, "Let's go to squadron ops...I've got a vacation to take."

*shiftyeyes* I thought I had weaselled out of that Engagement by the end of the story.

*sniff* I *liked* Millions to One. ^.^ I think. Don't quite remember it now. But it was one of your PFFs, I like your PFFs. ^.^

But no, I have no interest in being Mrs. Green's love interest. I'm more interested in a pretty redhead... ;)
