Michael Crane never got married until he was 48 years old. Shortly after the honeymoon, he was diagnosed with cancer. This was in the year 2043. By that time, doctors discovered a cure for cancer. However, the cure was so expensive, that Michael’s insurance couldn’t cover it.
There’s one more thing about Michael that you need to know. He was one the founders of a secret organization called the Space Time Menders. Since Michael and the other founders were getting older, it was time to bring in the next generation of Space Time Menders.
“Michael, I would like you to meet the next generation of the Space Time Mender,” Allison said.
“Hey, everybody. I’m Michael Crane and I’ll be one of your trainers. As you all know, you were all literally born to be Space Time Menders. Your parents were Space Time Menders as well.”
“I know,” a young blonde woman said is a disappointed tone.
“You must be Allison’s daughter, Maddie.” Michael said.
“Yes, she is,” Allison said.
“You two look so alike.” Actually, Maddie looked nothing like her mother.
“All of you were born with the same powers,” Allison said to the next generation of Space Time Menders. “You’re all psychic, you have memories from multiple universes, and you can open and close portals and rifts throughout time and space. You also have additional powers that are unique to you.”
“How do you know you all know each other?” Michael asked.
“Scott’s my brother, and I know Maddie and Grace from school.” Josh said. Josh is Michael’s nephew.
“You’re all friends, right?”
“How did you become friends?”
Long story short, when Grace, Maddie, Scott, and Josh were in detention, it was like one of the many parodies of The Breakfast Club. Actually, here’s the letter that one of them wrote.
Dear Mr. White: We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice
a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it is we did wrong. But we think
you’re crazy for making us write an essay telling you who we think we are. You
see us as you want to see us: in the simplest terms. You see us a geek (Scott),
an athlete (Josh), a trans girl (Grace), and an artist (Maddie). But we
are all more than those labels. Does that answer your question? Sincerely
yours, The Detention Club.
Michael then turned his attention to Grace. Her parents disowned her because she’s transgender. Sarah and Melody fostered Grace and eventually adopted her.
“Grace, you have the same powers as your adopted mothers,” Michael said. “Do you think that’s a coincidence?”
“I guess not,” Grace said. “Does that mean my biological parents are Space Time Menders as well?”
“No. Just because you were born with these powers, that doesn’t necessarily mean your parents were born with them. That also doesn’t necessarily mean your kids born these powers either.”
start off by triggering your own unique powers,” Allison said. “The purpose of
your unique powers is to defend yourselves. If you follow me, I’ll take you to the
The first generation Space Time Menders were Shelly, Steve, Allison, Sarah, Melody, Alex, Selena and Michael.
For this story to make sense, let’s go way back to the beginning.
In the beginning, there was Tempus, the god of time. There was also Chaos, the goddess of the cosmos.
Together, they’ve created the universe.
Tempus and Chaos had four children: Aquatar, the god of water; Iggy, the god of
fire; Arial, the goddess of air; and Terra, the goddess of the land.
The deities resided on a planet called Oberon with humans and reptilians. The gods and goddesses of Oberon followed three laws.
• Don’t alter the laws of nature.
• Don’t take away free will.
• Don’t get involved in mortal affairs.
However, Aquatar impregnated a mortal woman, and they had a daughter whom they’ve named Glacier.
Because of Aquatar’s act of treason, he had to give up his powers and live as a mortal. Aquatar was forced to put on the line in a tournament.
Even though Glacier was half-mortal, she was forbidden to get involved with human affairs, and she had to live as a goddess.
Chaos, the goddess of the cosmos, broke the third law by helping a little girl named Celeste.
Celeste lived with her parents. Even when Celeste was an adult, her parents would still tell her what to do. They had often resorted to various tactics such as gas lighting, vague threats, and violence to get Celeste to do their bidding. Celeste couldn’t turn to the authorities, because the people of Oberon had no concept of child abuse. The only thing that Celeste could do was to pray to the gods.
One evening, while Celeste prayed in her room, an old woman appeared to her.
“Hello, Celeste,” the old woman said.
“Who are you?” Celeste asked.
“I’m Chaos. I’m the goddess of the cosmos.”
“Are you here to punish my parents?”
“I would love to. But I have a better idea. I will send you somewhere else. You will struggle at first, but your life will get better.”
“Okay. Send me there, then.”
Chaos used her powers to create a wormhole.
“This wormhole will take you away from
your parents,” Chaos said. “Go!”
Right before Celeste entered the wormhole, her parents entered her room.
“What is going on?” Celeste’s father
Chaos slammed the door. Celeste’s father tried to open the door, but Chaos locked it.
“Go, Child!” Chaos bellowed.
Celeste stepped into the wormhole without looking back.
Sometime later, Chaos’s peers put her on trial for getting involved in mortal affairs and she was found guilty. As punishment, Chaos had to give up her powers. Therefore, she had to live as a mortal. But Chaos would not be alone. Tempus, the god of time, voluntarily gave up his powers so he could live as a mortal with Chaos.
“You can’t do that,” Chaos said. “You even said that time and space is ripping itself apart.”
“I’ve created who will repair time and space,” Tempus said.
and Chaos’ put their powers on the line in a tournament. The last match of the
tournament was between Glacier and Iggy. Glacier and Iggy fought across the solar
system, causing massive destruction to various planets. The battle ended in
rammed Iggy through an ice cave. The both of them were on the ground, flat on
their backs. However, Glacier managed to get on her feet, but Iggy couldn’t.
The winner of the tournament: Glacier.
Sometime later, Glacier was in her ice palace celebrating. She walked around the palace, talking to everybody like they were her friends. Glacier eventually visited the science lab.
“Status report?” Glacier asked.
“We’ve tested the machine repeatedly,” one of the scientists said. “It’s impossible to create a machine to manipulate time and to see into multiple timelines.”
“No worries. I have Chaos and Tempus’ powers. So, you can scrap this project if you want. But thanks for the effort.”
Suddenly, Glacier felt weak, and she had a sharp pain in her stomach. She also noticed that she was glowing.
“What’s happening to me!?” Glacier screamed.
“Your body can’t handle that much power,” one of the scientist said.
“And nobody told me this?”
“We thought that was common sense.”
Glacier transferred her powers that she got from Tempus and Chaos into the machine.
At that point, the machine lit up like a Christmas tree.
“It worked,” one of the scientists
said. “It actually worked!”
Everybody in the lab celebrated.
“Excellent,” Glacier said. “I have big plans.”
