RECORDING 007 - YEAR 2007 AD - MONTH 7 DAY 4
-sound of door being kicked open- "Whats up my dude! You trying to blow up my lab again?" "I told you I was running my second test today. Don't remember? It was right before the dean was about to do her speech on appropriate professor conduct" "I really have no idea who kept heckling her. It sounded like it was coming from the evocation school... so mysterious." -paper shuffling briefly- "Right... anyways. So you remember how you used to tell me about all of your adventures?" "One part in particular stood out to me, and absolutely fascinates me. The fact that you were able to travel between planes is something incredible." "Actually, I feel like with proper experimentation, this magic could be used to travel not only between planes, but between eras. Can you imagine proper space and time travel?" "Oh, wow, no. You need SO much just for simple teleportations, let alone a full planar shift. I see you've got the forked metal rod there, is it properly attuned? Is it made of pure materials? What about you, have you meditated? Is your mind prepared for the stresses placed upon it from inter-planar travel? Cmon girl this is heavy shit" "I remember the first time you teleported 10', you threw up everywhere! Planar shifting is going to be like that, but hundreds of times stronger." I've prepared!" "In fact, I just finished tuning this lil fork--" "You gonna eat with that lil fork?." "Fine, Forked Metal Rod, guess can't use layman's terms. I just finished attuning this forked metal rod--" "Naw calling it a fork is fine" "I ATTUNED MY FORK" "Ahem. Anyways, I've been practicing low scale teleportations as well. I experience no negative effects while teleporting the last 17 times. I'm feeling quite confident about this." "Alright alright, thats fair. What kind of shitty place you planning on heading to? Need some suggestions? I know a certain place..." "Is it the stink planet?" "No..." "It's the stink planet." "Shit. Yeah okay. But really, they love me there! You'd love it there" "I'm not going to a place you call the stink planet!" "Anyways, this is MY experiment. It's a three part experiment, I want you to witness part two." "What was part one?" "Part one was making sure I could planar shift organic matter. I spent an entire day zapping things out of this lab. Plants, nail clippings, more plants..." "You teleport a mouse?" "No..." "It's just a mouse my dude! We've used and lost mice plenty of times before!" "Those were accidents! Totally different from looking in its lil cute, beady eyes, and transporting it across space and time!" "Well, as long as you're sure about what you're doing this time. Not sure the dean would like another... event.... like the last time. Though, if you want, we could probably get her real good with this this..." "How bout we keep the dean out of this for now, kay?" "Anyways, can you take a look at my set-up here? I've collected magic residue into these flasks here, from my many repeat low-level teleportations. Siphoning them into my rig over here, with a condenser and multiplier." "I've etched the entire set-up with warding, enhancing, power, and location runes. Build a lot of it out of silver and cold iron. May have raided your stash for that" "Hey!" "I melted down prismatic sand to make the focus lens housed in the upper arms of this machine as well" "Wow, okay. So... why?" "Permanent planar travel portal! Test two is to start the machine up and try tossing things into it. Once it's proven stable, I can start working on the era travel along with space travel" -Faint tapping sounds, footsteps, humming and hawing- "I have to say, I'm pretty impressed. I like the way you've affixed the tuning fork to the residue flasks. What's powering this thing? Lemme guess, lightning?" "Lightning!" -a light shared laugh is heard between the two women- "Anyways, start this shit up!" -a large thunk is heard, and a whirring begins, low in pitch, rising in volume- "Field looks stable" "Darn right it does." -crackling sounds are heard- "Little bit high on the electrical energy side, no?" "I'm pretty sure that's normal..." "I'm going to try tossing this branch through the portal now" -a sharp crackle is heard, and what sounds like steam- "I just realized, I forgot to ask, where did you attune the fork to?" -the crackling noise increases in frequency and volume- "My soul, like the text said, why?" "WAIT. What text said that?! That's not right! You cant, you dont, that's not how it works! You attune the fork to the destination, not a part of yourself!" -the crackling sounds are intense for a few seconds, drowning out all other sounds- "OH SHIT" "LOOK OUT" -an electrical explosion is heard, followed by crashing, and a whirring sound that gradually slows to a stop- "Damn, that was close. Looks like you blew up my lab again after all!" "Opal?" "...Opal??"
