Override jumped into the monitor on his desk and disappeared into it.

A few seconds later his hand reached out of the screen and pulled grant into it.



Once inside Grant's body glowed. looking around at the scenery, it seemed that Tron's predictions of cyberspace were right.

Everything was geometrical and words and integers flew by quickly above their heads.

"Well what do you want to look up? Override tapped away at a giant virtual keyboard in front of him, "We can use this to take us anywhere as well. An hour here is only a minute in the real world. So if you have elsewhere to be later I can just pop you out at the nearest exit point."

He swiped his hand across the keyboard in a skirting motion and the entire thing disappeared in a mass of ones and zeroes.

"Ooh be careful with using magic or magical artifacts here in cyberspace." He raised and eyebrow, " Magic doesn't really work here. If it does, and that's rare, the results are never what you expect, really unpredictable actaully. Only magical numerology seems to work here."

"I'd like to see the what the scientists have found out about that statue," Grant said. It was still an ongoing investigation, as the stone exhibited odd properties, and it seemed a good place to start.

(Crazy late replay, I know... live has been so hectic ever since I bought the loft!)


Override began writing in the air with his finger, the words glowed in front of them forming what looked like a web address. as soon as override scribbled the last characters. The entire phrase flashed and a vortex appeared.

"Come on! This will take us to the scientist's database!"

He jumped inside.

Grant eyed the vortex for a second before he, too, jumped in. This should be an interesting experience, he thought.

A mass of ones and zeroes appeared in a massive room. they fizzled out and there stood Grant and Override.

No sooner did they appear when a loud chirping alarm sounded.

"Get ready.. here some the security protocols!" Override looked around.

A laser beam came at Grant. Override threw his hand up and a popup advertisement deflected the beam.

6 flying protocols appeared overhead.

"Cover your ears," Grant said. "I'm gonna give 'em my password. I hope it works."

"GO!" Override shouted snapping his fingers. The Protocols froze and a text box appeared in front of Grant.

"Say it. passwords get bleeped and starred here. you only get one shot though..."

"Am brawd ar gyfer teulu," Grant spoke, and the text box filled with stars.

"ACCESS VERIFIED," it said.

The security protocols turned and drifted away until they faded in the distance.


Override heaved a long sigh.

"Those panels om the wall over there should get you into the database.... what exaclty are we looking for?"

"Evidence files, video feeds," Grant said. "Whatever might help sort things out. I have a feeling it's important."

Override made his way over to one of the panels and put his hand up to it.

Several screens and a large translucent keypad appeared out of ones and zeroes in front of him. he started tapping away at the keys. and loading files.

Grant's eyes scanned the files. "There," he said, pointing to a video file. "Open that one."

Override tapped the icon and dragged it with his finger through the air to the wall.

A large video screen appeared in front of them and started playing...

The video showed a man looking over the statue. He looked familiar. "Is that... Vecini?" Grant asked.

Before any answer could come (whether or not Override was able and ready to give one), the man started to speak. "Codename: Tailor. Log. I was brought in to examine this statue by several experts. Using scientific aspects, they were at a loss as to many things. My preliminary observations suggest a metaphysycal aspect to the stone. The subject, in motion, seems to have been turned to stone. This catalyst, if I may make the leap, was a basilisk, based on the certain magical residue and the reactionary position of the body." He looked into the subject's face closely. "But this man is not who he looks like. I do not have the materials to reverse the basilisk curse, else I might have a better idea what the man truly looked like." He looked into the eyes of the statue intently. "Paerys os aidaeloria," he whispered. "Paerys os myr." Blinking and straightening, he faced the camera again. "This warrants further study. Alas, I can't learn more about this now. Tysti sai tia myr eiraes sharol sor, Kal." He reached over and the video stopped.

"Huh?" Grant uttered. Did he just say what I think he did at the end? he thought.

"Wow... what's going on then?" Override asked without looking up. he started loading a menu with several other possibly associated files.
