The 'gripping' diary of Ed Winchester
« on: October 31, 2012, 02:49:15 PM »
Yesterday I think we all decided we'd just about had enough of all this. Rubbish collector? I'm Ed Winchester for news sake! The people of this city need my broadcasting talents and without that, they don't have any news worth talking about!!! I mean just who is that guy with that stupid scar on his face? He needs some proper lessons in reporting on the excitement and thrills that this city is unaware of. A scar from a neighbors kitten, That's nothing kid till you've heard some of my tales.

The band got together and moved out today. A day like any other... but not today. Oh no, we were getting out of this place. And I needed to know what my news crew were capable of.

Tom... Big guy. Likes to be a hero. I like him though. At the sight of trouble he thinks before acting. I look forward to seeing him in full action. I'm sure he could hold a few adoring fans of mine back while I'm doing my reports.

Flux... A little crazy, but we all like a sassy one. I think she just wants to blow some things up. A little on the edge but she could be useful for getting into those locked buildings.

Keys... Yes that's his name from now on folks. He seems right at home with that computer in the library. Dancing fingers over the keys and great at 'unlocking' information. A good reporter always needs someone to get the leads for him to report on.

Aaron... A complicated gentleman, I'm sure you all agree! At first I thought him a coward, reluctant to plant a little media seed about a bomb, though perhaps just a little naive to the power of the media and how this little show works. Then he turns into the caped crusader on the way back to the hostel. Running to defend news knows who, from news knows who with robot limbs. I wouldn't have fancied his chances in a one on three with those guys. Would you?

Finally we have another interesting chap. Likes his tricks and I'm sure he could be a useful distraction whenever I need one. Hay presto my friend, hey presto.

I've managed to acquire some past thrilling stories I have reported on, with the help of 'Keys' today. Tomorrow begins a new dawn... A new day.. A new life.. For me! I'm off to the media buildings.

This will be Ed Winchester, reporting on the darker side of cryogenics and life after the deep freeze.

Now back to the studio...

zzzzzzzzzzz

Day 2...

I've done it. A foot in the door with the media. Its not a huge break, but I have someone who is ready to listen. All I need now is some proof and we're rolling....

Day 3...
I teamed up with 'keys' again today. I gave the 'revive' eyes the run around today which gave him chance to check out the bunks of peoples names on a list... Nothing.

We tried a Bank to transfer into an account number we have... Nothing (I think the cashier woman must have been attracted to women as there was no budging to my amazing charm.)

We went to the Library to find other bank locations, for Keys to look into having rights to a small fortune and for me to chat to that lovely lady that works there... Turns out she donates to 'revive' and there shouldn't be any anonymous donations as it's all done on computers.... But we know otherwise.

Finally, it seems that the others went out and enjoyed themselves at a shooting range. They seem to have given themselves a day off, which is nice!  I must admit I am a little jealous, I bet they don't even know I'm a crack shot with a rifle and spent most of my time at a range.

Oh we also find a place selling human meat... They say it's vat grown, but it's a possible outlet from people that are being taken from Revive. It's either that or for brainwashed cybernetic spies, or cybernetic limb storage. 

We'll get to the bottom of this. I'm sure we will.

Day 4...

And in the News... Ed Winchester is back on YOUR screens.

Who would have thought that being 'Ed-napped' in the middle of the night from the Revive hostel would have resulted in this?

I woke up to find myself in a darkened warehouse. My team were already looking around and moving towards the door, looking at tables and calling out for their imaginary robot friends - I guess that without as stunning looks as myself, they don't require as much beauty sleep as me in an evening.

Putting my investigative hat on I started to find out where the crates had come from, and hopefully where they arrived - thus finding out where we were. I had almost found the label when Flux started calling for me. I heroically ran over only to find that she had found a grate... a way out.

Springing to action I started to move the grate and called over the muscle of my team to land a hand. We managed to get the grate open in the nick of time, just as our foe were at the door. "Quick everyone" I called, and we all headed out through the grate and along a passage.

Bravely waiting for everyone to enter the unknown, I waited until they were all safely down before I followed - I was sure they would thank me for that later on.

It seems the passage lead to a closed door up to the streets and lucky for us, 'Keys' had a small crowbar hidden in where I could only assume was an 'internal' safe place!

He managed to get the door open just in time, with some encouraging words from myself and the rest of my team, and we all climbed out to the street level.

It was at this point when I emerged from the hole that I realized my team had 3 agents with guns pointed at them. My instant reactions and quick thinking enabled me to dive back into the hole, all to produce a 'shield of steel' for them in the form of a large metal door.

Unfortunately I didn't count on my team not being as brave as me, and they had all surrendered by the time I produced the door for them to hide behind. An agent approached me and instructed me to drop the door. Again, my quick, media mind, sprung into action and I let go of the door and tilted it to my foe. Unfortunately he dodged out of the way of it and it fell on one of my team's back causing a slight scratch. How was I to know he was already on his knees with his hands behind his head? Too quick to give up... too quick...

I turned to what I do best and sweet talked the agent into finding out his motives. It tuned out he was not there to take us hostage again, so I quickly turned his attention to the 'Ed nappers' that had taken us in the night and were hot on our heels.

The next few minutes went at 'Ed-pace'. the agents worked for a representative of a presidential candidate who happened to be in the area. A quick rundown of our past few days got him on our side and he sprung into action. This guy could have been a great news reporter in another life, I bet!

Once I had him on side with our story he realized that we could help him get votes by protecting the 'Revivals' - Something that has come a little close to my heart since our rebirth. We set forth to bust this case wide open.

The media were there and they loved me as could only be expected. Walker seemed to have borrowed some futuristic shades to cover his face so he was looking quite good and the ladies seemed to love that jawline of his. I told the story and I was back in the show.

Once it all went quiet we went to a hotel for breakfast and then ended up being given a small home for us all. It looks like we have new employment and me... I have the best job of them all.... Presenter of the show!

So WHAT IS IT with this 'Matter Box' thing? Everyone goes mad with it, making guns, computers, glasses with video recorders in them... This is OUR food. We have no income or any idea of our next direct and the items that we may need to get the answers we want... Yet people go making whatever they want!

I must talk to my team about this. It's CRAZY. It's News WORTHY, It's MAD BEYOND BELIEF.

What IS crazy is the network of pipes going from the toilet to the box? Every time I ask the box for my breakfast, I can't help but think that I'm eating my own Shit! In fact, even worse, I'm eating SOMEONE else's shit!

This has been bugging me, and I've not been able to concentration on the jobs in hand. We have had a heads up from Peterson, we can flyer his cause or investigate the 'Revivals' thefts a little more. I've decided that we can do both. Use the flyering as a front and get the scoops once we're inside. We've also setup gathering intel' by watching the areas at night. We didn't find anything on Sunday night, but it has enabled us to work out which buildings are probably not prime suspects.

Eating my own Shit!!!!

The others have decided that they will get Flux (and maybe Vaughn) inside a suspect building. Posing as fresh revivals they are to go in and search for clues. This is a sound plan but one fraught with danger... I like it.

If I ask for a drink is it my piss? Someone else's piss? Sewer water?

Anyway... We will begin today with Flux getting in there. Tom has gone to try and raise some cash with a gun seller and we are prepping to scout out another place. Who knows what today will bring, but it better be a fine meal at the end of it!

CHEESEY  :D

Who would write that on a wall in our kitchen? And why? That's the answer that we all seek... Well, maybe just me, but then I'm a news reporter slash detective slash celebrity.

Today we followed an old lead that I thought of. Me and Tom went to Ripper Jacks and found that he was willing to take bodies off us in exchange for a better deal on cyber enhancements. Apparently they are needed for when the enhancements don't take to the new host. I don't think he's in the link with these body snatchers as it all seemed too easy. However, we now know that anyone can be a ripper doc if they have had people to experiment on, and there would be a need for a gang that like their crude enhancements to have random bodies to have on hand.

Flux and Vaughn are in a dodgy revival warehouse. We will meet them tomorrow and see what they have found out about the place, lets hope they have been as successful as ME  ;D        and Tom.

We met up with the gentleman that runs the army surplus store. Tom seems to like him and he was a good resource for tapping information from about ripper docs. A good contact indeed.

I must get more people to know who I am. It's been a while!

Well, things are beginning to look up for Team Ed.

We have secured some large, metal drilling devices that we have fed to Goaty. Enough to keep us going for a while and provide us with some more weaponry.

Flux and Vaughan are in the revival place and we are on guard outside. Ed Winchester in prime position, rifle at the ready and it's back to the good old hunting days. If one of them body snatching robot freaks dares to harm anyone in my team, I'm taking him out - The predator is the prey.

I think everyone sees Ed as the nice guy. And lets face it... I AM  ;D  But I'm also a man on a media mission, and anyone in my way will be knocked aside. It's survival of the fittest baby and I'm doin' pushups.

Well, I'm glad it's not raining. A little cold up here on the roof, but needs must.

And why haven't I been on TV for a while, something really does have to change, and FAST!

Well the excitement is building up once again. I am currently trying to write this while following a captured Vaughn in a 4x4. We have planted him inside the revival center and it looks like they have taken the bait. 2 men with obvious cyber enhancements have taken him and we have him bugged with a tracker.

Earlier on today he was acting rather strange though. It seems that one of the revivals had taken his mobile phone and when we called it, it blew up killing one man and injuring another quite badly. He was acting very calmly about this though - for a guy that goes on and on about a small scratch on his back from a door grate, he seemed rather 'whatever' about this attempt on his life.

Flux is loosing the plot even more too. She seems to be playing a game involving her imaginary friend Diesel, 'obtaining control' which is disturbing in itself. She also seems to be making a load of things from Goaty, and handed Walker an explosive bullet. We also believe that she may be the Phantom Green Pen writer, or at least her potential alter ego Diesel is.

I'm glad that Walker, Keys, and Tom seem to be remaining level headed though, I could be loosing my mind with the other two. For one moment I was wondering if Vaughn was a cybernetic clone or something as he was acting very strange, I think the paranoia of the future is getting to me!

Oh my god, I think they are taking him to Ripper Jacks... I've got to get in there and delay things....

Cybernetic men dealt with - check
Ripper Jack detained and questioned - check
Media popularity increased - almost check
Friend's sanity in check... not checked.

Flux is loosing it. She is the 'phantom green pen' but we watched the footage and she is in a trance. It's like she is sleep walking but writing. We questioned her about it and she totally flipped. Her personality totally changed and she was confident, assertive and not like herself at all. A moment passed without questioning and she returned to her self. She said she was scared.

Peterson seems to have 'spoken to Diesel' before and seemed to understand her mental state. I wonder if this is a drawback from the revival process or if Diesel has always been there. An imaginary friend to help protect her when she is scared? Just a mental break from revival? Or something much more sinister that have found it's way into her brain during her revival.

She did mention that they were playing a game of 'Dominance'. I'm worried for her, and I'm worried for all of us. There must be something in these writings. They were put there so we would notice them, they were written to be found, there must be a code to break....

** If Shorty is ok with this, I'm happy for people to return to the flat and see Ed Winchester asleep at the table with his open diary next to him, a load of paper around him with scribbles of green pen descriptions and the following page of his diary open IC**

An eventful day but I think I finally have it.

It doesn't matter about the words in green, its only about what's happening with Flux.

She's trapped. The poor girl is trapped in a mind cloud caused by the Revival process. Her mind needs opening up. A mastermind of chemical genius, locked away and only her friend Diesel can help her open up.

We have to talk to her about Diesel. I'll let everyone know when they get back. Only Diesel can help her directly. Get her talking to us about Diesel and remembering what her amazing mind is capable of. The more we talk to her about Diesel, the more she can 'ask Diesel' about how to make things.

We must save Flux.

My god, I couldn't even begin to imagine the horror if I forgot how to be an amazing news reporter or that I was Ed Winchester....

Where did the others go to anyway?

A day off. Haven't had one of these in a while.

Went to the seaside. Well, the coast, to have a look at some GIANT robots. It turns out that whatever they were used for, no-one seems to care any more about their history. One thing that they are though is an excellent testing area for Diesel's explosives.

I think Vaughn was concerned about the testing. Throwing a bouncing bomb down the stairs and allowing it to explode May Not seem like a great idea, and to be honest it did have its drawbacks due to deafening us all. A at least we now know what they are capable of.

'Test 01' has taken place, bounce trajectories calculated and damage per square inch has been noted. Now I know how far away I need to be from one of those if it gets used.

After that excitement we headed to a casino. Full of Lesbians again! What is it with this century and it's women?

Diesel went home which gave me a chance to talk to Vaughn about the whole Flux/Diesel thing... He's far too emotional, something to bare in mind for future missions. He sides with Flux, the innocent quiet girl. Even when I tell him about the mind of Diesel - the confidence, the genius... He still wants to keep Flux around. Why doesn't he see that Flux is holding Diesel back? Why can't he see that everything that Diesel/Flux has worked for is being taken away by the virus of a child's mind?

I'll have to get the others to understand.

How come this pencil scratches so loudly on paper? I mean it's sharp so surely it shouldn't scratch that loud on paper?

'Keys' or Leo as he is apparently called, is in the living room. I can't see him through the semi closed doorway but I can hear him over this scratching. This new hearing is going to be great.... When I get used to it that is.

I can now pick out a conversation from really far away. Enhanced hearing capabilities and level dampening (or something like that it was called.) I can also record it onto a small computer chip for playback later, this will make for a GREAT media tool.

I think this is the first step to many other improvements. I think I'll get super human sight next. I was reading about it in the hospital, they can make an eye do any number of things. I think I'll make a shopping list:

Robot eye
Video recorder
zoomy in feature
night sight

If I get all that, then I should be able to get a visual and audio feed to record on my chips. Amazing evidence collecting and for reviewing at a later date. Wait a minute... I think FLUX Diesel had some kind of voice module thing implanted... With my ability to capture audio, I wonder if she he it she could simulate a voice if I could get her to hear it? Now that would be great for flushing out no-good criminals.

I didn't catch what the others managed to get, but I'm assuming Leo will now be 90% robot (If he had the cash), Tom will have something to make his firearm even better and Walker will have a pair of my glasses stapled to his head... Now that's an idea!

Here's signing off, I've been 'Robo Winchester'.

It all happened so fast, yet all in slow motion.

Like in one of those movies they had just brought out in his previous life.

The Matrix.

The power at Schmits went out and with enhanced hearing Ed Winchester heard the sound of a hand held metal ball bouncing on the floor through the lowering metal security door at the front of the building.

“Get Dow…..” was all he had time to say before the explosion reverberated around the inside of the building. Smoke began to fill the room as everyone dived for cover for the upcoming battle. Again, like one of the old wartime films, Ed activated his hearing dampening so he could focus in on the sounds coming from the doorway. It sounded like the movies depicted when a grenade had gone off near a soldier and his hearing was all muffled. Distant screams, doors slamming shut and the faint voice of Schmit cursing as he frantically bashed a button under his desk to no avail were all a faint low volume to him.

Another grenade bounced in through the door way, as clear as anything to Ed, a split second to try and locate the exact position and to squeeze the trigger. The semi-auto rattled a 3 burst shot towards the doorway, hoping that if this one was an explosive it would detonate away from him and the rest of his team. Did he hit anything? He didn’t know, but luck had it that more smoke simply filled the room.

Schmit shouted something about called shots, a faint cry to Ed’s dampened hearing but just enough to be acknowledged that his quick reactions were not welcomed without a call beforehand. ‘Had this Schmit ever been in the heat of a war zone or was it all just theory?’ Ed thought as he didn’t regret his actions for one second. When the bullets are flying past and the Taliban are storming in on a camp, no-one has a moment to call a shot. This was one of those moments, this was react or die!

Ed was in cover in the middle of the shop, not an ideal place, and he knew that Tom was over near one of the walls and the rest of the team along with Schmit were behind the counter. No time to think what they were doing, all he knew was he had an edge over them, blinded but putting new his hearing to good use, he had the doorway covered.

SLAM, a door at the back slammed shut as one of the team must have been going for either weapons or to see if there was an escape rout out the back way. At the front door Footsteps, they were coming in.

‘No moment to think, ED’ and another squeeze of the trigger as bullets sprayed under the doorway to hold them back. It sounded like something hit someone. The faint sound of a body hitting the ground and a curse from someone. Not a scream of pain, simply a hindrance – Ed’s gun was not powerful enough to hurt these guys, they were prepared and armoured.

Shots entered the room from the doorway. A spray of bullets from the now crouching attacker flew into the room in a wide arc and hit Vaughn. What was Vaughn doing? As the smoke was clearing a little in the shop now Ed could see Vaughn and Keys pushing in some mannequins to use as decoys. A good plan but unfortunate timing as Vaughn hit the deck in a crumpled heap.

BANG, it could be heard even over everything. Schmit had fired a high powered rifle towards the doorway. The sound was sweet to Ed’s ears, that familiar sound of a powerful weapon. He looked down at the semi-auto in his hand, ‘sad times Ed Winchester, sad times’.

Tom sprung into life. Like Schmits gun was an oversized starting pistol for a race. The marine leapt over the counter and shot under the doorway to protect Vaughn’s now helpless body.

THUD, the crumpling sound of a man hitting the deck from the other side of the shutter door told Ed that Tom had finished someone off. Tom and Schmit now had the front covered and Ed realised it was time to save Vaughn.
Vaughn was bad, very bad. Keys had dragged Vaughn’s body behind the counter and the both of them were lying down when Ed vaulted over the counter to join them. Vaughn looked up at him through a gas mask, startled and confused. His leg was pumping out blood and his eyes were closing.

“SPEED HEAL” Ed shouted as he reached for his applicator and injected his fallen friend with the nannobots. Vaughn’s eyes opened in seconds as the machines rebuilt the skin over the wound and began their work on reconstructing the muscle at an alarming rate.

“Where were the others? Diesel and Walker”. ‘They must be upstairs covering the back’ Ed thought. Keys acknowledged Ed aiding Vaughn and ran through the back door, presumably to join the other two on the top floor. Vaughns second wind had kicked in from the nannobots as he reached for what only Ed could think of was a small hand cannon. Crouching with his back still against the counter, he pointed the cannon at the door that Keys has just run through.

BOOM!!!! That was the back door. It was breached. Nothing sounds the same as several inches of steel coming off hinges and slamming on the ground.

BOOM!!! A Grenade, ‘was that Keys? Is he ok or did he throw it?‘ The only way to tell was to open the door and let Vaughn take a shot. The door swung open and Vaughn took his shot at the enemy and recalled from the hand cannons mighty roar.

It is hard to watch a fallen friend, already in a bad shape, pulling a trigger on a weapon that clearly he didn’t know how to use. There was a moment that Ed thought his hearing was malfunctioning. Everything went silent for a split second as he witnessed Vaughn’s arm jolt backwards and his shoulder smash into the counter behind him. He heard the intense scream of pain from Vaughn before he blacked out. And then the noise of the battle was back.

Tom and Schmit still had the front covered so the only thing left to do was support the back of the building. Ed leaned in through the back doorway and took in the scene. Lying in the doorway was a body which was currently on fire from some kind of explosive that had gone off… ‘Good one keys, good one’, a bullet hole the size of someone fist was visible from the hand cannon’s devastation with blood pouring out from the body, he was down and out for sure.

A man could be seen sitting in a jeep through the now blown hole in the back of the building where the steel door once stood. A moment to think and a squeeze of a trigger once again. “SHIT, hit the door” Ed cursed to himself as the driver turned and returned fire… And then it was all over.

Whatever Diesel and Walker were up to, they managed to take out the Jeep at the back. Ed swung back round the door, facing the inside of the shop once again. Tom was over a body of a man on the floor and another attacker dropping his gun to the ground surrendering.

To the ground…. The ground where Schmit lay motionless…

Schmit was Dead... The team was questioned and released as innocent in the whole ordeal.

It turns out that the attackers were the remnants of the gang of cyber body snatchers and now they were all gone... But so was Schmit...

"Oh well" Ed thought to himself as he shrugged to himself while lying on his old bed. Oh well.... Oh well... There would have been a time not too long ago that he would have felt really bad about it, but now it was just another body sacrificed to a personal war. Was this what the doctors were talking about with emotional deprivation caused by cyberware? Am I less humane now, or less human all together? "Oh well", there it was again, time to think about getting an eye done. There's always sacrifices when getting the best scoop and this would do it nicely.

Senator Anders had met with them that evening, personally. An honor really so he must be impressed or want something from Team Winchester. Even though we owed him everything really, he still acted like he was obliged to pay us for our troubles... Diesel was right, something may be a miss, but lets go for the ride and see where it takes us.

Ed looked down at his packed bag next to his bed, his rifle propped up against it.

"Time to go hunting for the Anti-Christ" he said as he sat up.

I now see the world in a very different way. I hear in digital, see in digital and will probably dream in digital.

These 'enhancements' show me the true world. What people are really doing, talking about and all with pin point accuracy. The media is in my minds eye and I feel invincible. Diesel is also looking good, he's got this throat device that allows him to imitate voices, a fantastic device I'm sure for cracking open cases. We can share memory chips too, anything I record with audio and visual, diesel could plug in and imitate.... But what about the others?

Walker doesn't look any different. He had something very subtle done as he came back all jumpy, not much of an enhancement in my eyes, but it's something to do with his reflexes. I hope he's not going crazy and getting nervous twitches.

Tom also didn't seem to have any work done, but I know he did. Something about bone lacing. I must assume it perhaps makes his bones stronger. Maybe his thawing process had problems and he was keeping quiet about.

Keys is going for a similar setup to my hearing work, but says he's saving up for a robotic arm. He keeps going on about something about hacking into the net. I think this may be crucial to breaking into places when we need to get a scoop.

Vaugan.... Vaugan.... Vaugan... Bought a car! I think it's like the 90's equivalent to the skoda in today's time. But it's his first car, it's his, and he's happy. I am worried that he's not got any work done yet though. If we're getting more and more difficult jobs to do, surely the threat is going to be higher and he will need to adapt or could end up dead! Which would be a shame, nice guy, shame to see him go.

We got a scoop with Fredric Christ and got past his goons without too much trouble. I really do have difficulty reading these half aliens, their faces look like ET's arse! I mean, how am I meant to read their expressions when they are full of ironed out skin and huge eyes, Fucking Wierdo's.

I'm in such a bad mood, I've got a headache and I've had to kiss Fredric's arse today, and I'll have to re-watch this footage over and over again tonight to try and judge his sincerity.

*sigh*

How did he not spot the guy in the hat?

Diesel is a wily one and had noticed the guy lurking in the background when everyone left. Perhaps its years of paranoia that trained him for his time on the outside?

Sitting in the restaurant and analyzing the recorded footage that Ed had captured from Fred Christ on Key's arm computer, Vaughn noticed Fred's expressions were a miss when discussing the church...

How did he not spot that in the Transient?

It must have been because it reminded Vaughn of a drunk guy playing poker. Dealing with drunk people wasn't Ed's style, he was more of a ladies man.......  :-\

Keys did some internet surfing while they all sat in the restaurant. After face planting his dinner he awoke again to tell us that the church was heavily protected from outside cyber infiltration and he would need to get inside. He did however find a face that kept popping up from media interviews with Fred Christ, a chap that always seemed to be  getting beat up by Fred's heavies.... Perhaps he knew something that they didn't? It was time to go back in.

How did he not spot the guy in the hat.... again?

Diesel clocked the guy and Ed moved in to get him in a 'passing' interview. After cutting the cameras and saying that they wanted some dirt on Fred Christ, the guy in the hat agreed to go to a nearby pub and spill the beans. Turns out his sister went missing when becoming a 'daughter of Christ' or some shit like that. Seems like Mr Christ has a thing for transient girls and is potentially using the front of the 'church' to facilitate his desires.

"Either way this is great news to discredit the opposition party if we could get proof of what he is doing with their money, or to discredit his actions and therefore words to get the Transients to vote for ANY party..."

Keys needs some time to get ready to hack the cameras from inside the district.

Ed and Diesel need to get in there again and find a good secluded spot for keys to hack in

Walker and Tom need to attend a funeral with Vaughn, just before he... well...

Just before Vaughn becomes a Transient woman to get close to Fred Christ.  :-*

Brilliant!  ;D
