CORELINE: A Tale Of Two Maris (Ch. 4)“An abandoned Play-Doh factory,” she muttered to herself as she walked silently through the site of her latest task, hopefully the last one she’d have to perform in order to finish her assignment. A Langford Labs Chemical Thrower was slung over her back. “I know that Batman rogues and their amalgams prefer hideouts that match their ‘themes’ but this just silly.”More Like This
She mentally shrugged to herself, already working on her strategy for after she’d dealt with her target inside. Framing someone for murder involved walking a very fine line, especially when the person you were attempting to frame was a very highly trained super soldier. Leave too much incriminating evidence and it looked suspicious. Leave too little and people weren’t sure where to point the finger.
/It doesn’t help that nobody’s around to witness this./ She thought. /Shit, this is even worse than with Bane. I’ll have to set the place on fire or something t
CORELINE: A Tale Of Two Maris (Ch. 3)“It was bad, and make no mistake about it,” Detective Max Greevey said. “I came out here to get away from the kind of crimes you run into in New York, but this was as gruesome as anything I ever saw in Manhattan.”More Like This
“Yes, from what I already heard so far, it was really terrible,” Karin replied, struggling to remain patient. “However, we’re going to need details.”
She wished Turnot hadn’t zipped off somewhere to contact somebody or another the moment they’d gotten the name of the victim. Despite his Saiyan heritage, her boyfriend had always been better about being polite and making nice with people. Her talents lay more in roughing people up until they talked.
The latest killing had brought them to a small suburb outside Fort Wayne. The two Champions hadn’t yet gotten the details of the crime, but by the looks of things, it had been big. The scene of the crime—a local bank—was cordoned off by what seemed l
CORELINE: A Tale Of Two Maris (Ch. 2)Since becoming the Commander of the Indianapolis branch of the Champions, Bulma Briefs had dealt with a number of delicate situations. Personally, she preferred it when she could just instruct her team to hit the bad guys very hard until they gave up; that was simple.More Like This
However, having to deal with complicated issues where a wrong move could lead to all kinds of fallout went with being in charge.
“So,” she addressed Turnot and Karin, who were standing on the other side of her desk, “you’re telling me two people were murdered this morning at a warehouse on the edge of the city?”
Karin, who had just laid out the basics of all this to her, looked mildly (and some would argue, forgivably) annoyed, but Turnot remained as patient as ever.
“That’s right,” he said.
“And there’s video of these murders, which show the perp to be none other than Captain America/Mari Illustrious Makinami?” Bulma continued. “The one who’s s
CORELINE: A Tale Of Two Maris (Ch. 1)In the mad world of the Core Timeline, it was a truism that you could find insanity just about everywhere. With the way fictional objects and people of all stripes were constantly getting dumped into the world, that was really just a given.More Like This
However, it was also the case that some places had to deal with a lot more or less of it than others. Locations that were frequently the settings of various fictional works got particularly slammed in this regard; New York City and Tokyo had an especially huge amount of chaos to deal with, while Washington and London weren’t far behind.
Near the opposite end of the spectrum were places that were perhaps somewhat less likely to frequently feature in the popular imagination.
Indianapolis had gotten off about as lightly as was possible for a major city; the city’s famous speedway had attracted various drivers, from Ricky Bobby, to Captain Falcon, to the famous Speed Racer, but very few super villains or horrors felt specifically drawn to In
Get Off My Back, Akane!Ranma’s eye twitched as he listened to Akane nag at him about something. He wasn’t sure what it was, but it was probably something either stupid or something that wasn’t his fault…as usual.More Like This
“Ranma! Are you even listening to me?!” screeched the female martial artist as she glared at Ranma.
“Would you just shut up already, Akane?! Whatever you’re going on about probably has nothing to do with me anyway, so get off my back!” exclaimed the raven-haired boy as he went back to trying to ignore her.
This was obviously not the best way to end this as Akane’s temper got the best of her and sent Ranma flying through the air with one mighty kick.

‘That’s right. I’m not in Konoha no more.’
Naruto remembered the events of yesterday where he somehow traveled to a different world, a different universe. He was lucky to end up somewhere that had people who were willing to help him. Speaking of which, he had officially met them all last night.
First there was Keitaro. Naruto thought he was okay, even if he was a little clumsy at times. Apparently being clumsy was not a good thing at this place as Naruto saw first hand last night when Keitaro got blasted through the roof by Naru.
Speaking of Naru, she was really mean. Along with the fact that she tried to kill him, Naruto didn’t like her and mentally noted to try and stay away

Two Years Ago; Valley of the End
A shrill, bell-chiming noise filled the air, so sharp and piercing it hurt the ears. This sound, however, wasn't from a traditional bell; the sheer volume of Wind Release chakra being concentrated into two separate points as a singularity was responsible for this horrifying sound. And the source of this screeching was a young blonde girl with flowing blonde-twintails. Normally wearing trademark orange, Naruto Uzumaki was enveloped in a yellow light that covered all but her skin as she floated in the air, protected by a chakra-effigy of Kurama, the Nine-Tailed Fox.
She was fighting for her life, and, low on chakra, had resorted to the use
