PostSubject: Reverberance Of The Daleks [OPEN]   Fri Jan 27, 2017 7:07 pm

Rhydian Martis was starting to develop a problem. The problem was always at the back of his head, but it never occurred to him that it would play a prominent role in his ‘hobby’ as a time traveller when his mum uttered the simple words, “You look different”.

Rhydian flopped onto the worn brown leather couch, taking his black denim jacket off and dumping it somewhere on the left armrest. He didn’t miss this weather, that’s for sure. In the constant 40 degree (104 degree Fahrenheit heat, Rhydian couldn’t afford for extra layers and his long pants weren’t helping. Resting his head on the back of the couch, feeling the heated moist surface of the leather against his palms, Rhydian sighed.

This problem was much worse than expected.

Due to the nature of time travel, it was relative from either side. Rhydian  could go to any time, any place he liked and spend days, months even at a time and return in a matter of seconds (on a good day). This, combined with his rapid growth at his age of merely fourteen, would make for some… complications.

His mother Ava, a short Chinese woman nearing her forties (but still looking quite under thirty-five, mind you) began to notice things. A lot of things. He had grown slightly taller, his hair a little longer than just what it was a few hours ago. A mother picks the small details like this up after a while. Rhydian was just lucky his brother was too young to notice these details.

Rhydian just shook off the accusation of his growth when his mother asked him about it, but she knew something was up and would be determined to find it. How would Rhydian ever tell her that he was gone for months on wacky adventures through time and space when he was only gone for a span of hours? However, Rhydian already had a solution to his little ‘problem’.

Popping off the steaming leather couch, he took his jacket off the arm rest and paced to the door before telling his mother that he’d be going out, in which he got a reluctant approval. It wasn’t going to be long, about an hour or two. He would pop off to the 51st century, a century he already had a lot of currency in (courtesy of his father) and get a de-ageing solution.

As he zapped himself off in a flurry of sparks and lightning accompanied by an air-splitting crack, Rhydian knew that this solution would only be temporary. Since a de-ageing serum, whatever form it took, pill or liquid would only de-age his appearance, not his actual physical and mental state. If he kept using the solution then eventually he would reach an age like fifty and still be a shade over 15. If he wasn’t poisoned from the sheer constant doses of it. But right now, that was the only thing Rhydian could afford. The only other option he saw was leaving in real time, and that would be for months. That would mean telling his mother. Oh well, a problem for another day. But for now, he would need to scour the 51st century stores and shops for a de-ageing serum and he’d be on his way-

Hang on.

This wasn’t the 51st century.

The sound of crackling fire from all directions was the first thing Rhydian noticed. He then noticed the orange tinge of everything, courtesy of the sky which was shaded dark orange and black by the aforementioned fire. Then the emptiness, the abandoned streets around him- or what was left of them. The streets were covered by rubble from buildings alight and smashed to bits. Some buildings were completely levelled, others had gaping holes and gashes through their shells.

“This can’t be the right place…” Rhydian mumbled, confused.

Checking his Multi-Spanner still in his hand, the date was the one that he was aiming for. But that was not possible, this was certainly not what he was expecting, at the very least. Oh well, he could always try again. The Multi-Spanner just made a mistake; it happens when something is used too much, performance faults. Rhydian input the coordinates for his home, the place he had jumped here from, and pressed the activation button.

He received sparks in response.

Shocked and confused, Rhydian’s instincts made him drop his spanner, it clanking on the floor. He winced, his hand a little singed from the sparks and covered in soot. Wiping the soot off his hand and onto the lower half of his pant leg, he picked up his Multi-spanner carefully and looked at it with knitted eyebrows. That had never happened before. Luckily, the internals didn’t seem to be damaged after a quick diagnostic (he didn’t have time for a thorough one at this point) and read some scans he took of the time-space zone.

Uh oh.

Was that… correct? Was that…

A time lock?

“Oooooh, no, no no!” Rhydian shouted at his Multi-Spanner, shaking it in denial and frustration. This was a time lock. That meant the whole entirety of the current timezone he resided in was permanently locked; nothing could get in, nothing could get out. Well, at least not with time travel. A physical barrier around a certain time can only be passed with the natural passage of time. Unfortunately, there was no way Rhydian could tell how long that would be. He certainly wouldn’t stick around to wait.

This meant he couldn’t go home.

This also meant that someone or something wanted Rhydian here. I’m flattered, Rhydian thought for a split second before concentrating on the matter at hand. Taking a better look at the butchered, mutilated buildings and constructions around him he noticed that there was a small group of glistening objects in the distance. From this length he couldn’t see what they were, but as he listened more closely he could make out a barely-audible but shrill voice coming from that general direction. If he could only make it out more clearly-

“Exterminate…”

What.

“EXTERMINATE.”

Oh.

“EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE!!”

Flannagan was looking for the best space bar. Most of the other bars on earth were not exactly top quality and he had all too much publicity, especially when he was packing weaponry in holsters. Of course, there was a problem. His method of traveling was not a comfortable one, seeing as what was teleporting him was a little gem that he had taken off some blackmarket man who really didn't need it anymore - and he needed it far more, running from the government and all.

The place he had ended up was....Flannagan's jaw clenched. This dug up bad memories of the civil war, his previous life coming back in flashes as he took in the scene; parts of buildings gone, some even flattened to the ground and a crunch echoed under his feet. He looked down, horror soon filling his being - he had stepped on a rib cage. This was not exactly the place that he had imagined - whatever happened, must of happened in the recesses of his mind. He slowly walked among the ashes of what seemed to once be a civilisation.

The orange reflected on his face as he stood, turning himself around on his heel a full 360 degrees.

He needed out.

This was not a good place to be.

“EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE! EXTERMINATE!!”

Flannagan opened his eyes, at the voices. Metallic, deadly. Whatever they were, he wanted to be nowhere near them. His eyes wide, Flannagan needed to get out of here - his own survival was depending on it.

It was going against his nature to not open fire, but this seemed like the best idea.

He ducked into the nearest shelled out building, pressing himself against the most covered area - hopefully away from the moving trashcans. No, no, no....it was like the civil war all over again.

Rhydian stared for a few seconds at the tin-cans that were slowly advancing on his location. He was frozen in place, but just for a minute before his fight-or-flight instincts kicked in, and lucky for him, he chose 'flight'. If he took some Daleks head on, he'd be vaporised in an instant. Swiftly navigating through the rubble beneath him, Rhydian sped off in the opposite direction of the monstrous-looking garbage bins and ducked behind a piece of concrete which was connected to a larger building.

Rhydian took some time to compose himself. Breathing heavily, he slipped his Multi-Spanner into his pocket to catch the aforementioned breath. Resting his head against the crumbling concrete behind him, Rhydian took a minute to compose himself and sort out the newly-absorbed information.

1.) He was trapped in a time-lock.
2.) His Multi-Spanner couldn't penetrate the lock.
3.) He could be trapped in this time line for who knows how long.
4.) Crap.

Rhydian was so focused on trying to find a way out (in which he could find none), he had noticed the man in a light khaki trench coat next to him way too late than he would have. Slowly turning his head to the man next to him, he realised he had no clue to what was going on, or he was just as trapped as he was. Rhydian was optimistic and went for the second option.

"So..." He started, still panting slightly, "Got a way out?"

He had not noticed in his heightened state of fear (it was probably a good guess that it was indeed fear that Hertz currently felt) that he had not acknowlegded the figure that had been next to him. At least not until they had started to speak that his head turned slowly and eyes focused back in.

"Plan?" Flannagan did not have one, nor was his mind currently focusing on any other solution than to run. But, hope was there. There had been another survivor. They needed to stick together, at least until they found themselves away from this hell. "Any idea on what those talkin' trash cans are?"

Flannagan could hear them growing closer. He took a deep inhale and exhaled through his nose. Gemini XI's war was child's play compared to this, or now that he had put this in perspective. "I suggest we get somewhere safer before these things find us and we join the rest of the civilisation in the dust. Because I'm pretty sure shooting them would not do a world of good."

“I’m guessing you don’t have a plan.” Rhydian mused cynically as he continued to tinker with his Multi-Spanner, trying to get the Vortex Manipulator attribute working again in the fleeting hope of a chance that it could. He got zilch. “Those ‘talking trash cans’ just happen to be THE deadliest creatures that us as a member of the universe have ever had the misfortune to share said universe with. Nigh-indestructible, impossible to reason with, and will go to the most extreme of lengths to eradicate all life that isn’t one of them. They have no emotion apart from hate, as they’re born with nothing but that and have weapons that can destroy entire solar systems at a whim. They’re called Daleks.”

Rhydian’s expression turned from fearful and surprised to concerned and agitated in a second. He was stuck in an impossible predicament. “Unfortunately, the Daleks have been oh, so kind to have taken the liberty of erecting a time-lock around this particular time stream, so I can’t use my vortex manipulator to get us out. And I don’t even know how long the time lock extends to, I could be stuck for hundreds of years here!

“All I wanted to do was pop over to the future to get myself some skin product, that was it! I didn’t ask for this yet I always end up at the bottom of the trash can, so to speak…” Rhydian trailed off, and in a moment of silence (save for the crackling of the fire and the occasional sound of a Dalek gunstick going off), Rhydian sighed and straightened his posture. Not only was he stuck, he had no idea what the Daleks were up to, but he could just about one hundred percent guarantee it was about taking over the universe or something along those lines. “You know, it’s funny… my dad had a friend who supposedly could survive being shot by Daleks hundred and hundreds of times…

“I’m Rhydian by the way. Not exactly the best conditions to meet under.” Rhydian broke a smile, which eventually formed into a determined smirk, “Say… what do you say to a little snooping around?”

0o0o0

“Dalek Patrol Unit Four, report!”

“The Resurrection Gauntlet has been acquired!”

“Deliver it to the Rift Generator!”

“I obey!”

If the Dalek Emperor could smile deviously, or even cackle evilly, he would have. The Rift would soon be opened, the gauntlet would soon be activated and the universe would soon tremble at the prestigious majesty of the purebred, ultimate, unstoppable Dalek Empire.
