Incubus- A Certain Shade Of Green
December 22, 2012 AD, 10:12
It wasn't going to happen
originally. It was never even an option before. But at this point, we really
have no choice. Wait. Let me backtrack for just a moment. I feel like this is
going to be a momentous day for us Heventicals. No doubt when I die, they will
search for notes such as this, wanting to know more of the inner workings of my
mind. So, I shall write all from the beginning.
We, Heventicals are, as you
may already know, a great people. We have invented things which other cultures,
even other species in other galaxies are only beginning to conjure within their
limited realms of imagination. Our mind mass is so much greater than that of
most species, allowing us to use it to it's full potential. Telekinesis is the
term in fact. It really isn't a complicated process at all... please. Forgive
me, of course you would know this. As well as the fact† that†
we can reproduce food from other organic substances, build vessels that
traverse the stars greater than any other race could manage, and so many other
wonders to species that arenít worth mentioning.
Though we have accomplished
so much, our one fault would be that we are such a curious race, beings that
only wish to know more about life and the universe. Though our ever evolving
bodies to other races, other lifeforms would be a fascinating enough study, we
desire much more. We need to know what is around us and discover all that we
can in the limited life span we're granted.†
I think you agree with me that a millennia is not nearly enough time to
discover all that there is to life.
That is why we travel, as
of course, you already know as well. To see new worlds and discover the life
that exist on each speck of the universe. The galaxies that I've traveled and
the planets that I've visited do not compare at all to the beauty and variety
that my planet exudes. The lifeforms that I've discovered are nothing compared
to our own. Most of the lifeforms that I've encountered are very primitive,
just recently developing a language to communicate. Silly beings, using verbal
means to express thoughts and ideas, as menial as they are. Even with this
clear factor, I still wish to travel the stars.
But none ever were as
hostile and as evil as the ones I've encountered on Earth. Now, I will give
humanoids this one acknowledgment: They did neutralize a huge threat by dealing
with Ultimecia. In a very primitive fashion, but nonetheless, dealt with her as
best they could by eradicating her. Since this may be ancient history for those
who may ever read this, I'll explain.
Ultimecia was a being just
like us Heventicals, but her evolving stage involved her being able to
change shape and form, allowing her to take the shape of humanoids. Why she
would choose to degrade herself like that is beyond me, but her crimes weren't.
She tried to tamper with the timeline in our period and even tried to freeze
time, compressing it, if you will, in our universe so that she could achieve
more power for her own selfish ways and become an even stronger being, with the
thought of ruling the universe. An experiment gone awry caused her to be able
to drain a planet of itís life. A very morbid thought, I know.
There was a warrant on her
head so that we could strip her of all her powers. She would become even weaker
than these humans, and I'll get to them soon enough. She fled the galaxy and I
thought if maybe on my frequent journeys around the universe, if I had happened
to find her, maybe I would apprehend the creature.
It wasn't too hard to
follow her. She left a nice wake of destruction everywhere she went and by time
I arrived at Earth, she was there, ready to make Earth her next place for
destruction. Of course I didn't want that to happen, thus the reason I was
making frequent stops throughout the world of Earth, looking for any clues as
to just where she exactly was.
But, I think now would be
as good as time as ever to explain to you the nature of humanoids. Humanoids
are a people that ride on their emotions more than anything else. I have never
encountered a species where fighting and bitter opposition reigned more than
calm conversations about life. They resolve almost all of their disputes with
wars, that is considering they are formed nations. The individuals, on the
other hand, figure out how to separate their problems with their fists. No one
favors the more civilized means, and it saddens me to see such a thing.
Many economic problems
plague their worlds as well, even though they could all be logically solved and
their ecosystem continues to be downgraded as the years and months roll by. It
pains me to know that these kind of... savages exist within the very universe I
reside in. I would have loved to destroy the planet right then and there, but I
wanted to make sure these humanoids were truly evil like I expected them to be.
While I was flying around
Earth in my Spacepod, Junix, I encountered a band of individuals. I never
experienced fighting to ever occur in all the journey's that I went on and
didn't expect anything to be different here. This was a huge error on my
part. The humans quickly went into battle mode and summoned awful monsters
against me, the like I have never seen before. This type of abuse, to creatures
that can think and reason on their own level of logic, to have them commit such
horrendous acts is something that even these lowly humanoids should be above.
But, yet again, they have proved me wrong.
They damaged my ship
severely and I flew away, still shocked that they would dare attack. I had to
crash land further onto the continent and staggered around for a bit. The beast
of the fields have the same tendency as the humans to attack without warrant,
and I engaged many a beast in battle as I tried to find a way to repair my
ship. I remember the Teamer of Hev, the group ensuring all space travel to be
adequate, told me to carry a level 45 photon pistol. I thought it was a
excessive measure, but still complied. Now I see why.
The thing I needed for the
repairs of my ship was kikuyu, a substance that was found in various liquids on
that planet, Earth. There was a high concentration of it in a drink called
Elixir. I knew I had to encounter those humanoids again, no matter what the
risk, so that I could repair my ship and leave that god-awful place.
Surprisingly, I encountered the same rogue band who once threatened to
eradicate me beforehand. But, I pleaded my case, hoping they would give me what
I wanted and was forced to... forgive me. This really is a sickening and
degrading thing to us Heventicals. But, I was forced to verbally voice
the thing that I needed.
Surprisingly, they gave it
to me. I wanted to show that no hard feelings were offered, so I gave them a
card that they could scan in anyone of their computers that would show them the
meaning to life and all it's fascists. I was hoping that they would put that
card to good use. I guess they didnít.
As you know, we never kill
anyone. It's not necessary. We just simply strip them of their powers and send
them to correctional facilities which has a 178% success rate at changing them
over. That's what I was going to do with Ultimecia, but they got to her first.
Destroyed her, which, on a side note, is a pretty incredible thing, seeing as
how she's 2,341 times stronger than they ever would be. How they killed her,
I'll never know. Maybe they used those awful monsters that attacked my ship.
In any case, that was the
first act of misconduct Earth conducted against the universe. Killing off an
alien being. The second, and most severe one sealed their fate.
Once I returned back to
Heventic, I told the Teamer of Hev everything that occurred while I traveled on
Earth; That of Ultimecia's destruction, my attack, but strangely their help in
restoring my ship and of their general nature. They didn't know what to really
do. They wanted to neutralize any kind of threat, if there was to be one
against the galaxy before it became an issue, but at the same time wanted to
make absolutely sure that whatever they did was for the greater good.
They sent Geentic, my
partner in life and best friend, on a mission to Earth and to establish safe
communications with them. Never had she had any problems on matters such as
these, as each and every alien race that was sought out welcomed us with open
arms. This was the first time this wasn't the case.
Once Geentic arrived on
Earth in a public domain, mass hysteria ensued and many individuals took up
arms against her. They captured her and locked her up until it was decided that
she would need to die for whatever radical reason they had. The microscopic
camera on her person revealed the whole trial and procedure. I wanted to be
there. I wanted to stop it all, but not even our advance technology could
arrive there in time to halt that assault on life.
A very primitive weapon was
fired at her head repeatedly until it was confirmed that she was dead. And
that's when I confirmed with the Teamer of Hev to do the thing I'm about to do
right now. I've assembled the strongest strike force that had ever been
assembled in the history of life in a very quick and sudden assault against
Earth. A planet that has such evil, worse then that of Ultimecia, must be
eradicated. They won't change.
Iíve had that same mental
image replay over and over within this mind of mine, seeing her body jerk and
stutter to the ground as her life energy slipped away from her being. She was
everything to me, helped me through the rougher parts of my life, and these
lifeforms, these humanoids tore her away, doing so without any qualms.
Geentic, the only
Heventical I truly loved will never return home again. I'm 455 years old. I
thought that she would live out the rest of my days with me as knowledge of the
universe grew with me. I don't want any other Heventicals, for that matter any
other lifeform that has the means to travel as we do to suffer the same kind of
misfortune I had to undergo recently. This injustice must be meted out
immediately, and the whole galaxy agrees. Killing off Ultimecia was one thing.
She wonít be missed or mourned for. But killing Geentic, my one true love and a
HeventicalÖ That will not be tolerated.
There will be no discussion
when we arrive at Earth. There will be no mercy dispensed on the part of us. We
will do this thing and return to a life where we can rest peacefully and
continue to explore the galaxy. Earth will be destroyed. I donít want to
live a life where problems will arrive as soon as they have the ability to fly
into outer space as freely as we do.
The commander of the other
ship just contacted me. We have arrived and judgment time is nigh. Geentic will
be avenged, and Earth will not abuse anyone, anymore.

The line that Brandon sings
in the song A Certain Shade Of Green about 2012 AD struck me as odd the
first time I heard of it. I paid it no mind, though. But, that 2012 AD thing
came raging back at me last night when looking at the season finale of The
X-Files. The "truth" that they've been searching for all along was
the fact that aliens are going to invade Earth on December 22, 2012 AD. The
fact that these two VERY separate mediums both said 2012 AD got me wondering,
and I immediately went to Google. There, I found out what this 2012 AD thing
There's too much info, but
basically, people believe that there is going to be a significant happening
during Dec. 22, 2012. Specifically, 11:00 a.m. Some even believe that there is
going to be alien happenings. This all stems from the Mayans and that their
calendar stopped at that date because that is when a winter solstice is going
to occur, and various solar happenings will be weird. Some took that to the
extreme and (with some very good theories) said that aliens were going to come,
like Chris Carter on X-Files.
So here I am thinking,
"This could be a good idea for a fanfic." and here it is. FFVIII
played the role perfectly, what with the little space ship that was flying
around the place here and there you might have spotted during the last disc. I
also tried to tie him into the role of Ultimecia (I think Square pulled her out
their you-know-what at the last minute. There still was no reason she should
have been there.) and I think I gave her a better purpose at doing what she did
I was going to go into more
depth and look at a resurface of a Ultimecia type woman who's was to take over
the world and this would be a Squall's fanfic then. But then this would turn
into a epic, something I had no time for. So, I went the obscurity route where
I could make up everything to fit my workings. Those stories where new threats
come about and the OLD team has to stop them are so used anyway. And, of
course, I had to have a bitter sweet ending. It's so typical of me. Anyway, I
hope you enjoyed this and tell me what you think of the story.
