Two weeks after Claire Bennet's televised leap from the Ferris wheel, the 12th handles it's first case delving into the strange world of specials. Evidence points the investigation toward a former Company Agent, a man Noah Bennet would swear up and down doesn't exist.Notes:
Takes place post-series for Heroes
, and post- Nikki Heat
. Takes place after my story "One Giant Leap
" (for a given value of "after").
I'm fudging the timeline of both shows a bit, but specifically for Heroes
, assuming a longer period of time between Volume 3 and 4, and that the series finale, Brave New World
, took place in early December of 2010.Disclaimer:
Slash, superpowers and Nazis.
And while it seems almost a waste of time to disclaim this, no, I am not in any way a supporter of Nazi ideals, white supremacy or the Third Reich. I'm just an insane history-loving sci-fi nerd, and I like to acknowledge that Nazis, despite having been human beings moved by human desires, are one of the most universally one-dimensional characters in all of fiction, and wanted to present one that wasn't...
Remember, it's a crossover with Heroes
, where things are almost always a bit "morally grey".
That said, there's enough wrong with this whole story for you to hate me, regardless. If for no other reason than because "empathic mimicry" is a horrible cop-out of a power, and is a horrendous plot device even when Peter had it.
This is without a doubt the most psychotic story idea I've ever conceived of, and I apologize in advance to anyone who actually reads this. Castle
fans most especially.
Title is borrowed from the memoir by Johann Voss (which I haven't read, I just thought it fit).( View Chapters... )
