A new Adventure-ish

“Optimus?”

“Yes, Phantom of the Dark.”

“Actually, please refer to me as Mr. West from now on…”

“As you wish, Mr. West. You wanted to ask me something Mr. West?”

“Are you able to record for posterity? Or something ‘on the record’?”

“Of course, Mr. West”

“Good, can you do a full encryption so that only current members of SAVIOR can access the contents?”

“Yes.”

“OK, begin secure voice and video recording, I want my reactions and emotions available for posterity. Lets call this…SAVIOR After Action Review for events dated 23rd March 2024 1800 hours until 24th March 1800 hours

“Recording has begun, Autobots Rolling”

“Please, before we begin, don’t use any of those idiotic cartoon phrases when I’m doing secure recordings…or at anytime I address you directly…I swear, I will rip the electrons from your nano circuits if I hear it again while I’m directly talking to you….”

“…Transformer responses turned off.”

“So where to begin…First, since I’ve been “retired” from Sector 10, I no longer have a reliable outlet to recall events, hash them over or just download the data anywhere, So SAVIOR, I’m going to use…ahem…Optimus…(mutters, under breath)fucking shit…to record what I know as after action reviews or AARs. This is, hopefully, so we, as a group, can go over our actions and make improvements and to just record for posterity. It’s always good to have your side of events down on record.

“Let’s get the nuts and bolts out of the way. 1800, 23 MARCH 2024, Deathwish & I arrived at Granny2Good’s with cheap wine for the party. DW & I offered it, comments were made on the quality, or lack thereof. One was used in a cooked dish, the other ended in the waste receptacle, which DW & I retrieved and started consuming, waste not want not.

“Dinner was served, it was delicious. Then Tea was served, it was mind bending. Some strange powered mix Jake gave G2G to serve at the party. He was already passed out, but alcohol was the cause. Within moments almost everyone that sipped or drank the “Tea” was completely tripped out of their minds. I can’t say what the other experienced, but something very animalistic came forth from me. I looked at DW, said ‘You want to go?’ She smiled, starting walking away and taking her clothes of, I followed doing the same. We didn’t make it to the bed, I was on her like a wolf. What I do (or should I say elect to) recall was shear animal madness on the floor. I finished, saw the “wine”, gave her some, took a swig my self, then was back at it. The noise must’ve alerted the others, we were interrupted by our host. Bad form, oh well.

“This is mentioned because I believe this lead to the next set of events; Several hired gang members were able to approach the house and plant several explosives without ANY of us realizing until it was almost too late. All were neutralize, explosives and gang members.

“We also were visited by a stranger, Caedechron, who some how is/was a friend/colleague of Jake. He was told to meet him at the house. In my state, I tried to “read” him and I pushed real hard not knowing who or what he was. I went real deep and made a new strange connection. I knew EVERYTHING about him, including his mortal death (only way I know how to describe it). I put that away as we had to deal with the explosives and the gang. Once the gang was rounded up I sought out the leader. I wanted to “read” him and determine who hired him and his final objective. Well after the experience of the night, I pushed hard with him as well. I again knew everything he knew, including his full mission and who procured his services. Sam “Mickey” Eisner. I will discuss some things about the experience later. Suffice to say, I went into another mental spiral, having two whole additional minds in my head…oh forgot to mention gang leader was the one who killed Caedechron’s mortal body.

“Once I was more recovered, the CSPD arrived to haul off the offenders. I have a back and forth with the leader and realized that not only has I pulled everything from him, he also pulled everything from me. That had to be rectified.

“I talked with select members of SAVIOR I felt could help with the situation, Jake (of course), Caedechron and Miss Amazing. We ended up back at Jake’s “lab”. He took some measurements while I tried to assist. Strangely I was able to understand most of what he was doing and even contributed a few minor details. This was from using the memories and skills I pulled from Caedechron. Jake was able to determine he could remove the memories and thoughts. A first I was hesitant and lashed out at him, but I realized this was necessary, and I agreed to have Caedechron removed. It was a painful success. I think I suffered some brain damage, but it worked. Next target the gang leader.

“I contacted a confidential source I have in the CSPD to gain access to the leader with Jake. We went to the precinct where he was being held and were escorted in the back entrance of the holding cells. The leader was in a room waiting for us. We used a ruse of scientific experimentation for a new interrogation method/lie detector. With Jake Thompson, Hero of Century Station there, it was easy to convince them of this.

“We strapped in the leader, gave him a sedative, zapped his brain real good. Another success as far as we could tell, the guy passed out after some easy questions about who we were. We continued to “shine” the Officers and even gave a few autographs and some group selfies. I made sure to keep my masked face behind others.

“Once this was completed, we returned to G2G’s (since our HQ was still being repaired). We all had to discuss the Artorians and what to do about them. I gave my account of a recent ‘shopping’ trip Jake took me on. I discussed the various atrocities that have been committed by the race and what the eventual plan for earth will be. I was whole-heartedly for destroying the ‘princess’ and her ship that is in orbit of Earth now. While they may not be ready to ‘convert’ Earth yet, I know it is coming. I’ve seen it often enough here on Earth by Humans. There is a constant to the Universe…EVIL.

“Jake devised a demonstration to prove to the others of the truth and found another reality (I guess there are 100s or 1000s of them or more, can’t really say) that had been ‘converted’ so those that were hesitant could see the possibility. We all jumped through one of his Space/Time dimension rings and we arrived on what seemed like Earth, but there were subtle differences. Those I will discuss in my next report/AAR.

“I want to “vent” about my experience of what I’ve found out is know as mind bonding. Wow, what a description…I mean, to bond is to simply join two entities together…THIS was something wholey not like that. It’s…more like…mixing of two minds…I mean, it was difficult to parse out where my experiences and knowledge ended and the others began. Of course, once I bonded with the gang leader it became so much more…Three complete minds bouncing around inside my head…Fuck, talk about mind blown…and then on top of all that, the leader was the one that KILLED Caedechron…I mean how do you process watching, knowing, seeing yourself KILL yourself…yet STILL BE ALIVE!!!! WHAT THE FUCK! I thought, once I had recovered from my complete stupor, to try and teach the leader a lesson, I shared the Killing as if it was from Caedechron’s view. Total failure, my mistake was thinking that such an evil act would sicken him, on the contrary, he was very sick and disturbed. A would say a clinical sociopath…a complete lack of feeling, empathy or emotion with the exception of some sick joy over causing such pain and misery. I’ve committed some terrible acts in my time of service to my country and city, but good fucking shit, this guy…If it wasn’t for the outlets of being in a gang he would have been a serial killer for sure…the evil oozing from every corner of his mind. I can’t wait to be rid of these memories and feelings, once “mickey” gets his due. I think I’m going to use some of the things I “learned” from the leader on him…just for fun…

“…ahem, end recording Optimus…save all, including that last line…it all needs to be on the record.

“I need a fucking BEER…

  1. “I swear, I will rip the electrons from your nano circuits if I hear it again while I’m directly talking to you….” No, I couldn’t handle Optimus dying again!

    Speaking of dying… Mason Bloodget was admitted to the hospital after info on his misdeeds were anonymously sent to the police. You should all drink some celebratory beers about that!
