FH: A…O, Prologue
“Finnigan, I wouldn’t…”
“That Bombot needs serious…”
“DON’T TOUCH IT!”
“Relax everybody…” said Finnigan, as the workplace breathed a collective sigh of relief, believing the threat had passed. The Adanan maintenance workers were suddenly choking on that sigh as Finnigan turned back to the malfunctioning bot. “… besides what are the odds that another one…”
“Have you ever noticed how peaceful the world is…? Particularly after you’ve been blown up? Sure most people only complain about the blindness and the incessant ringing in their ears, but I prefer to look on the bright side. In those moments, when your mind is completely opened from the shock of unparalleled pain, the world is bathed in the purity of true white; and all the chaotic noise of a topsy-turvy world is erased. One finds genuine respite, blanketed in the the slow pulse of your own heart beating in your partially damaged ear drums.”
“Hi. My name is Finn, well Finnigan Hinklebolt to be exact. This is my story, or well the beginning of… um, I guess technically it’s somewhere in the middle, as my birth would be the beginning beginning, but that’s a story for another day… so… what was I saying… AH, YES! This is the beginning of THIS story!”
Author’s Note: Finnigan Hinklebolt: Apprentice… Ordinaire, is a Gems of War Fan Fiction penned by yours truly, efh313. I will be releasing it episodically, following the tradition of serials of the past. My goal is to try and drop a bit more of the story each month until the story is told. We shall see how it unfolds together. To all who choose to take this journey with me… Thank You and Enjoy!
Second Author’s Note: Feel free to discuss the story in the thread below, this is an extremely creative community and though I have an outline that takes Finn from beginning to end, there are many details yet to be determined, and it might be fun to incorporate some of your musings and suppositions into the plot. Thanks again!
