Operation Play The Jaz Of New Wounds: Part 1

The Maydex computer was one of the most advanced pieces of technology in all of the British Empire.
I say “was” not just trying to get my tenses right.
I think that was simple past?
The “was” was also to push a point that no technology is beyond future advancements.
The Maydex computer was built to help detect any sort of Beyond Human activity come from anywhere close outside British borders. It’s meant as an early warning system.
You know what Maydex can’t do?
A Maydex computer can’t predict a Jaz Brooks.
Jaz Brooks sat in a chair scratching her forehead ,bringing blood and ripping the skin.
If she kept this up her forehead might end up looking like Dusty Rhodes.
RIP The American Dream.
Jaz was sitting on a chair, and the chair she was sitting on was an old wooden rocker that had been placed on the porch of a rundown house.
Jaz was about 5’10 and looked like a normal 20 something. She was a young lady in the generation of fast food and crazed diets. She had a figure but was also shaped like someone who worked out on a regular basis.
Basically as a friend of mine use to say “She has a bit of cornbread about her.”
Continuing on my unwarranted discussion of her appearance Jaz was wearing a wife beater shirt and if she was bigger chested she would have been showing them to the world but without a bra they stay hidden.
Her fashion was a pair of jeans that were black but with splatters of yellow paint on them and she was barefoot except for barbwire wrapped around her right foot.
The barbwire had pierced and ripped open wounds that dripped blood creating a blood puddle on the porch.

The Maydex didn’t pick up her until the first drop hit the porch of the old house.

Operation Babel Fishing: Part 2

An M.B.H.T. device, otherwise known as a Music Box Hack Tool is a small crank wrist device that moves in appearance very much like the interworking’s of a small music box. In fact the function of a M.B.H.T. device is to detect one thing on purpose and that is to detect unsafe open Wi-Fi and computer systems, but it also detects any sort of one way or two way listening devices nearby.
He likes to make people think he’s a cosmic maker, tinker of thrown away pieces, a manipulator of things to work a way not originally meant. Part of him wants people to believe he is part of some interdimensional DIY culture that creates technological tips to doing things on their own.
He’s had his run ins with more than a few Hacker Scales, been hunted by groups of CNC Assassins across sterile lands, and he even got involved in the family feud between the Woodworked Bots and the Metalworked bots that left a big scar on one of his legs that will not heal.
He did create his M.B.H.T. device and considered it part of his “learning through doing” philosophy. This way of thinking is why he had walked this day to where he was.
Serenity had been sitting in an office for 6 hours playing with his gadget, an office only a few people had set foot one in. He was sitting relaxed like it was a place he was all so familiar with and had no worries about having his feet up on the old oak table. His old WWII Army boots were a sight set against the nice wood finish and the brass and gold decorating its surface.
The room was stark in decorations but with things here and there to make points about its usual dweller. There was a Baby Hand Of Fate in a glass box on a lone shelf hanging on the wall behind the desk chair. Also one side of the office hung a poster from the 1990 movie Hidden Agenda, and on the other side a picture of his boss.
No, not him.
Not her either.
Or him.
Robert Gilligan, codenamed Spotlight, the head of Viking Section, a secret arm, for the most part, sort of, of the Security Service of the British Empire, this important man walked into his office with a little cackle seeing that Serenity had made himself comfortable.
He had received a letter a few months ago from Serenity saying he wanted to stop by and talk about business.
‘Making yourself at home?’
Serenity sat up straight smiling, ‘You know me. I’m always where I want to be and where I need to be and where that is is home.’
‘You have always been a confusing man to talk to Serenity.’
‘My dear man, with any way of communication it’s all about how you listen.’
Spotlight sat down at his desk, ‘So what did you want to see me about? Oh, and thanks for the help with the Peacock Katana operation.’
‘Always glade to help. And I would be more than happy to continue to help.’
‘Are you asking to join Viking Section? After I asked. No after I begged you to be the field leader, now you are ready to join up?’
‘I’m offering out of the kindness of my heart to help out a friend.’
‘Yea, right, I’m buying that.’
‘Would you want to take up and use my talents? That’s what I’m asking.’
‘You’ll have to answer to Gator. He’s a good man and I’m not demoting him. Even for you.’
‘All good with me my old friend.’

Operation Babel Fishing: Part 1

All of Viking Section was gathered around listening to Serenity talk. He was leaning against a table in Scull Doe’s office setting a scene in his strange dress of WWII British Army boots, a silver and neon green pinstripe suit, and a very old brown winter jacket with matching winter gloves.
As Serenity spoke his dirty blonde curly hair bobbed up and down with his pale skin making him quite a sight to see telling the most insane stories of when he use to work with Spotlight, the head of Viking Section, whom no one besides Scull had ever meet face to face.
‘The time we found the original Volto Santo…’
‘The what?’ Gator asked.
‘The Veil Of Veronica young man. It’s also called the Sudarium.’
‘Said to be a holy relic. A cloth which has the image of the face of Jesus Christ on it. Saint Veronica encountered Jesus on Via Dolorosa on her way to Calvary and ….,’ Agent Of Words
‘Shut up Words,’ Gator
‘That one is like a computer,’ Serenity said with a big smile.

Operation My Barbwire: Part 4

Gator forced himself to open his eyes but it did no good. His brain wasn’t registering anything but darkness. The last thing he remembered he had laid down on the grave of the Smile family of Smile Town Texas. The legend said he would feel The Holy Spirit grab him but it wasn’t any sort of Holy Spirit that reached out for him but just before he blacked out he saw hands burst up from each side of him up from underneath the ground and grabbed him around the waist.
He didn’t even get a scream out.
Matter of fact he couldn’t get a scream out now.
The fact was not even a whisper or a squeak left his lips.
Then suddenly the wind was knocked out of him and he blacked out again for a time to awake once again, this time on the floor of an old room lit by some kind of natural green glow.
He got to his feet in time to hear footsteps off in the distance that were getting closer and closer. Then into the room stepped a man holding a torch.
That’s a flashlight for you Americans.
Gator could hardly make out the man’s features in the green light when the man spoke in a authoritative voice, ‘Names Serenity. I think you are looking for this.’
Serenity handed Gator the Peacock Katana.
‘I was talking to your big boss and he asked if I could lend a hand.’

Operation My Barbwire: Part 3

Gator Raid, Mary Shelly Words, and Tesla Kevin Electricity were walking into the graveyard of Smile Down, a small town right in the middle of Texas, right in the middle of being a typical Texas town.
Being typical, and I’m being a little stereotypical here, there were the 8 guns shops, the drugstore, the independent newspaper (calling for succession), the 37 churches (all Christianish), a sheriff’s office, the hardware store (with an old man who is always in the back because he trusts people not to steal), the grocery store, a bar owned by a former sheriff, a settlement of Native Americans just outside of town, and one huge fucking cemetery.
That last one is for white folks only ok.
It’s tradition.
Our three heroes stood out quite a bit in Smile Town. Not as much like sore thumbs as like a shredded bloody giant thumb.
Or three giant shredded bloody thumbs.
Telsa Kevin Electricity was dressed like a Sex Pistols/steam punk mashup. His laptop bag had fibers running through it that made it look like something out of Tron and he smelled like ozone.
And paired with him was Mary Shelly Words decked out in her young London banker white tightly fitted suit and red trainers. Her hair was cut so short it looked like an old Marine buzzcut. She was never seen without her smart one; which constantly gave out a low frequency whistle that she said kept her mind clear.
Gator Reid stood out too but not as much as his team members. He stood out in appearance like someone working too hard to fit in. Camo hunting boots, blue jeans, a confederate flag t-shirt, and a Vietnam era Army jacket.
The Viking Section field team had stopped just inside the cemetery so Gator could give out final mission details, ‘The founders of Smile Down died here. Six family members where the first laid to rest here and are buried here together in one grave. It’s said if you lay on the grave you will be grabbed by The Holy Spirit and shown the light. Locals are scared shitless of going near the grave site.’
‘My information says it’s located at the very back of the cemetery,’ Mary Shelly Words.
‘Yea, after the family each grave since has been dug further away from the Smile family grave. It’s why this town has the largest planned cemetery in the world,’ Gator told her, ‘Words come with me, Electricity stay here and get all the readings you can and guard the front gates.’

Operation My Barbwire: Part 2

Gator wasn’t enjoying his flight to the states. Not that he ever enjoyed travelling back to the country that birthed him but he had had just two hours before getting his new assignment to head to Texas in the United States, though he had just returned from an assignment in Oklahoma in the United States.
Also he was saddled this time with having the field teams Agent Of Words and Agent Of Electricity travelling with him.
They’re travelling under the names Mary Shelly Words and Tesla Kevin Electricity.
‘Who even came up with those cover names for you two?’ Gator asked.
‘Sir, should we be using these words to discuss this topic in public?’ asked Mary Shelly Words.
Gator pinched his nose in frustration, ‘Ok. How about I don’t talk to you for the rest of this trip and I talk to Mr. Electricity?’
‘Sir?’
‘Same question to you Tesla.’
‘Sir, it’s part of the tradition passed down through the years for Agents Of Words and Agents Of Electricity. We have a list of names and we cycle through them. Each agent does this and we start over when an agent dies.’
‘Though most of the time we don’t even use aliases,’ chimed in Mary Shelly Words.
‘Remember, I’m not talking to you.’

Operation My Barbwire: Part 1

Gator Raid was pacing in front of the take out shop talking to his boss on the phone. Well, one of his bosses, ‘Why‘re we even interested in something like Yamashita’s Gold?’
On the other end of the line was the Assistant Head Of Viking Section Operations Scull Doe, ‘Not a bit interested in the greatest lost treasure of modern times?’
‘Nope. Not really. What connects this to something we would be interested in?’ asked Gator
‘The Peacock Katana.’
‘What?’
Scull learned back in her desk chair. Everyone else just goes where she says and reads the files. This is what she gets for hiring an American, ‘Yamashita’s Gold was a war loot stolen by Japanese, the Yakuza, and U.S. forces. The Tiger Of Malaya pulled off an heist that would have made George Clooney and Frank Sinatra die in shame. But as most are interested in what came from the banks, museums, and private homes. Even the religious stuff isn’t anything to even peek our interest…’
Gator, ‘But this Peacock Katana?’
Scull, ‘Some say it was the first Katana ever made and was blessed by one of the ancient gods as it was dying to be used as a revenge sword. The only sword that could seek out revenge against the other gods who struck him down.’
Gator, ‘So we are after a God Killer here?’
Scull, ‘Yes, so now you know why this is a top operation for us.’
Gator, ‘So where are you sending me this time?’
Scull, ‘Actually you are heading back to the states. Texas to be precise.’

Gator, ‘Oh, glory.’

Operation Clifton

He sat with his head in his hands in the court houses small defense attorneys’ office. His attorney stood over him in a stern stance, in her eight thousand dollar pants suit looking down at her client in the glory of his JC Penny pinstripes.
‘Trust me, I’m the best person to represent you.’

The jury reached their verdict and the bailiffs escorted him from the courtroom and Maxwell Rogers showed no emotion. He lowered his head down and said nothing to his brother who was sitting behind the defense in the gallery nor his defense attorney herself.
Maxwell concentrated on one thought, one thread of thought, one measure about what had just happen to him. He expressed this with a whisper that even the guards escorting him could not hear.
‘Maybe I shouldn’t have hired my ex-wife as my lawyer.’

The court house contained two large cells, one for incoming prisoners and those awaiting trail and the other for prisoners awaiting the trip to the state lockup.
Today the state outgoing had only two men playing the waiting game. One was Maxwell Rogers who had just been convicted by a jury of his peers and the other was confessed serial killer Cleavand Klinger.
Cleavand Klinger had made his way across six states carving little boys in little pieces and sending pieces to politicians all over the country with notes about America’s sinful leadership.
Mr. I Would Even Creep Out Freddy Krueger was sitting in the corner of the cell far opposite from Maxwell.
Maxwell was in a stone like emotional state when the guards came to transfer him and his cellmate.
‘Both of you come and put your arms through the meal opening,’ said one of the guards.

On their way to the state prison in a van an impact took place head on with a salt truck.
Cleavand pulled Maxwell form the wreckage.
As vehicles burned on the remote country road it also started to snow and the two prisoners are visited by a creature that stepped out form the flames.
The creature, who we will call Charles offered them both one wish if they tell honestly what they did and why.
Cleavand told the story of his first kill and why he did it.
Next Maxwell told his story and why.
Before Charles can give Cleavand the wish for more power and Maxwell the wish to be able to stop people like himself and Cleavand some first shot Charles in the back of the head and then followed doing the same in the face with Maxwell and Cleavand.
Gator pulled out a secure cell phone after checking to make sure all three were dead.
‘The runes told true. Give Words a pat on the back because we can add another Charles to our list.’ Gator put his flip phone on his shoulder while lighting a cigarette. He jumped right back into the conversation, ‘Yea, I took out the two cons too so another Charles won’t get the scent. You said I had two North American assignments, what’s number two?’ A big grinned crossed his face. ‘Yep, I’ve heard of The Superstition Mountains.’


Charles are Wish Parasites who grant very nasty people wishes to cause chaos. Some have said they are the children of a Chaos Demon and a Chaos God. One of the most nasty things in creation really.

Operation Cage: Part 2

Operation Cage was supposed to be an investigation into Japan’s Underwater Ruins. An adventure to the highest order. A trip to go forth and find, with a touch stereotypical villains, and a little social racism.
But… :(
See on one of the coasts of Yonaguni, underwater- thus Japan’s Underwater Ruins, there are ruins that are thought to be 10,000 years old.
They’re actually much much older than that.
Because much much older is more more interesting.
The true facts about the site are debated on award winning shows like Ancient Beyond Humans on that channel that use to have a lot of self-respect but sold out Beyond Human this and Beyond Human that and was Hitler actually a Beyond Human and did he has ball cancer.
But it also has that guy with the hair.
Yea, the meme guy.
Viking Section was hoping it might be the location of The Akasaka Toiletry Case.
It’s the type of thing they go in for.
Also, where else would you find such a powerful object if not Japan’s Atlantis.
But an American group beat Viking Section there so the team has instead gathered to drink as good British government agents do when things don’t go their way.
‘I am not saying you’re stupid,’ Gator told Agent Of Words while pouring himself a drink at Scull’s home bar, ‘Ok, what I’m saying you’re wrong on a very high level, not a gray area for miscommunication there, Wrong! There is a difference between being wrong and being stupid. Don’t be so sensitive.’
Scull put her arms around Agent Of Words and Agent Of Electricity, ‘You’re ok, he’s ok. I would suggest you get out of his way when he’s drinking.’
‘My new days are a journey to the next drink,’ Gator told Scull while the agents of Words and Electricity go off to a corner in Scull’s flat to be weird together.
‘I think you are so cute when you are crazed in such an American fashion,’ Scull
‘True friends look you in the eyes and then stab you in the chest. A drink is always a true friend,’ Gator
‘Ok,’ Scull told him while tossing an empty bottle into a big trash can that had been setup in the kitchen.
‘I’m moving from the direction of my life in progress to something scary,’ Gator told her handing her a new bottle. Then he pulled out a hand rolled cigarette from a American Civil War era metal case and lit it up.
He offered one to Scull but she shook no.
‘I don’t do drugs because my life is scary enough right now,’ Scull

‘I don’t need technology,’ Gator jumped back into his rant, ‘I like it but like Fruity Pebbles I don’t need  it, it needs me. I’m the human and my computer is just a huge paperweight without me, but fuckers like those Agents Of Electricity and Agents Of Words are basically a hidden religion trying to fuck us all.’

Operation Cage: Part 1

*a bit of catch up since The Writer God was sick.

Viking Section
M7VS or Viking Section is a secret arm, for the most part, sort of, of the Security Service of the British Empire. It’s the United Kingdom’s search for under secrets. The original origin and still main focus of Viking Section is the quest for The Philosopher’s Stone.
 Although mainly concerned with the search for The Philosopher’s Stone Viking Section also helps out other sections of the Security Services when they come across something they haven’t encountered before or long term supernatural related investigations. Their intersection work ends up being helpful because of the vast amounts of knowledge Viking Seciton has hoarded over the decades.
Within Security Services it’s known also as Box 1313 as that was the address of its WWII wartime vaults and headquarters. Viking Section’s modern base of operations is unknown even to most of the other Security Service sections.
Because of Viking Section’s long history within the British government and firm connection to the Royal Family, the reason behind its original formation as stated before, it has almost ultimate ability to work its operations within The British Empire and allied nations.

History Of Viking Section
Early years: Viking Section started out under the title The Improved Compassionate And Shielding Order Of Tears To The World as an offshoot of Oddfellowship during Britain’s battles with invading Viking forces. When one such Viking brought with him a parchment detailing a possible location of the legendary Philosopher’s Stone the Royal Court ordered the formation of a group, partially made up of captured and turned Vikings to find the stone to make the Royal Family immortal.
After mentions of names and stories here and there, all over the world about the order the group passed away from anything being written about it until a document that surfaced in top secret hands during WWI.
So many were dying in the bloody trench warfare during that a goal was set forth to  protect Queen and country at any cost and the order rose once again now under the official title of Viking Section and the duty was restarted under a modern team.
During the war the team travelled the world searching for the stone, gaining knowledge and insight along every step.
After the war it is not known if the section continued or stopped but the official word was its operations were halted during “peace” times.
Second World War: The war in Europe ended with the invasion of Germany by the Western Allies. Britain knowing the Soviet Union and United States would not hold to agreements on seizing Nazi scientists and relics for themselves, so called spoils of war, during the war; so they dug up Viking Section to find and get ahold of Nazi under secrets.
Viking Section’s role in counter-terrorism: With the rise of terrorist attacks on British soil and the growing fear about Beyond Humans, Special Branch asked Viking Section to have an olive branch agent ready to help when it comes to gathering information, creating counter terrorism procedures, and helping with possible under secret terrorism involvement.
Serious crimes: Along with helping with counter-terrorism from time to time Viking Section has reached out to give information to Serious Crimes but almost always they do this without anyone knowing it’s them doing it and it always has to be on their terms, you can’t reach out to them.
Surveillance: With all the information Viking Section has obtained in its existence they have been very valuable at times when it comes to surveillance help with the rest of the government.

Viking Section current operations team consists of:
Operations Head: The head of Viking Section operations is Robert Gilligan, codename Spotlight. A former MI5 agent, highly decorated, and known within government controls as someone you don’t cross. Most politicians won’t even mention Viking Section in fear of what information Robert might use against them.
And he would.
Gilligan put together the new Viking Section team after the previous team went into a deep cover with identities cleaned to continue a search for the Philosophers Stone. Many think this was just a cover operation created by Gilligan because Viking Section already had the stone in their possession and doesn’t want to turn it over the Royal Court.
Even his team doesn’t have much contact with Gilligan and all orders, assignments, and notes coming through his assistant of operations. Scull Doe.
Assistant Head Of Operations: Scull Doe is a former Royal Marine who flew helicopter rescue missions in many areas of combat. She was recruited by Gilligan to be his assistant after she flew a copter rescuing injured U.S. and British soldiers; while also combating a Beyond Human who had attacked peace keeping forces in South Africa.
While her main job is to be the go between Gilligan and the team, she is also the person who put together the team in fact while Gilligan was busy explaining the former teams mission to the Queen herself.
Field Team Leader: Gator Raid is an American agent and his real identity is a secret even from his team who was assigned to work with Viking Section as part of a shared operation with a U.S. group close to what Viking Section is within the U.S. government.
Agent Of Words: The Agents of Words has been a part of Viking Section since its beginning. They are the ones charged with knowing all and being able to use the Sections knowledge like a weapon. They are recruited at a very early age and schooled in secret.
Agent Of Electricity: Another member of Viking Section that’s been a part of it for a very long team are the Agents Of Electricity who came to be during the rise of technology and many think they are a link to Techno Mages and the origin of that clan of magical folk.

Weapon Master: John Jon Williamson is a former assassin who is kept in check by an implant in his skull. A Beyond Human with the power to master any weapon or form of combat in quick fashion.
