What Has Gone Before:

The superhuman former basketball player Scott Stiles, also known as the Super Savior, has led 144,000 religious refugees from his famine-stricken Earth to an alternate Earth whose leading power is Turkey. The Turks were ready for them. They were captured near New York City by the army of this universe's Sultan, Hope Springs VII.

A hermit wizard monster-bee from yet a third universe was sucked along with the refugees. He used his wizard powers to resist capture, stung one man, then saved Scott Stiles and flew away. The stung man became a monster-bee and followed. They hid in a warehouse in Bayonne, New Jersey - known as New Bosnia here.

Mr. Stiles went out exploring, and heard about the True USA - which only goes as far west as Denver. Meanwhile, the bees captured a bunny and a duck - Atomic Bunny and Psychovant the Duck. Those were depowered, though Psychovant could still speak.

The Sultan began planning against the invaders. He has many consultants with many plans to deal with bees. One plan began with an artillery barrage. In the resultant combat, the monster bees and Psychovant the Duck (with powers restored) all broke loose from Scott Stiles' party. With nearly nothing left, Scott hooked up with a True USA agent, and went to a safe house with her.

Then the bunny spoke. He said they should capture two mystic cubes which were held in the Turkish Embassy to New York Free City. Scott and the True USA agent decided to free Scott's army from captivity instead, in the Meadowlands stadium. They walked into an ambush.

Meanwhile, Psychovant freed one mystic cube from the Turkish Embassy, then interrupted the ambush to threaten the bunny. But before the duck could deliver on his threats, his cube dissolved and Atomic Bunny got his powers back. Psychovant chose the better part of valor, and fled.

Now the prisoners are free and have made contact with True USA reinforcements. Scott's most powerful ally, the New Sentinel, is nowhere to be found. But Scott is about to try to capture his turncoat ally, Philippe St. Joseph Lateran.

Thursday 26 May 2011


Scott Stiles dented the stands of the Meadowlands stadium, as he jumped and landed outside the door of the penthouse suite. The guards outside were gone. The guards inside, were his.

He grabbed the handle and then kicked in the door, at the hinges. He was strong enough to do that. He pulled the door back with him.

A hail of gunfire came out the door. Scott was off to the side, waiting. When the gunfire faced, he charged in with his improvised shield.

Ten seconds later, a room full of guards was moaning on the floor. But Lateran still stood, with his hand on what looked like an oil tank by the penthouse window. He said, "Young man, I have my hand upon the switch of the most powerful bomb in the world."

"Okaaay... But this is Turk World or something. What is the most powerful bomb here? Some kind of Arab oil bomb?"

Lateran smirked. "You are more perceptive than people give you credit for. This is a Fuel-Air Demolition Bomb. It will burn this stadium down and destroy everyone within."

"You'd set this off??? You were part of our church! We're all trapped here! You shared the faith with us!"

"You are less than perceptive about me. I care nothing about you."

Scott Stiles looked at Lateran, and the bomb. He had his finger hovered on a control device, but it was connected by a cable to the bomb. So he said... "I call bull!"

"Huh?"

Scott Stiles kicked Lateran away from the bomb and the switch.

Nothing exploded.

Scott said, "I didn't see about you, but I've seen this world. Deadman switch? With you holding it? No way!"

"... You are more perceptive than even I gave you credit for. But still you must see, I am trusted here. I can build that peace treaty between the Church of the Super-Savior and the Turkish Empire."

Scott Stiles thought, this might be good. But he knew, Lateran had mental influence. So he said, "No way!"

"Eh?"

Scott picked Lateran up by the collar. "You get punched like people always dreamed of punching Hitler!"

Scott's mind was flooded by visions of great alliance.

Scott punched anyway.

He came to his right mind. Scott had let Lateran fall, but Lateran was out cold on the floor.

The lady Kurdish agent, Pola, came through where the door was. "You have obviously prevailed. We prevail elsewhere within this stadium. What shall we do next?"

"What, don't you have a plan?"

"Obviously we would evacuate all captured warriors. And refugees as we can."

"We can't just leave them here!"

"We must. Unless you have a plan."

Scott Stiles thought of a plan. "I can't leave people behind here."

"But if we can just retreat with even any captives, we can say, Rebels Always Win. This is important to your nation's history."

"Maybe here. But where I come from, we say, America Wins!"

"So what is your plan?"

"I'm going to challenge the Turkish Emperor to combat!"

...

Meanwhile, in a laboratory in Istanbul, the Sultan Hope Springs raised his arms. "Yes!!! ... I suppose the power transfer was successful."

The head technician bowed his head. "Yes, my Sultan. You now have the power of this invading New Sentinel."

"And those powers are...?"

"No one is quite sure. We did not see him in action in our universe. But people of his congregation say he punched his way here across universes."

The Sultan's Vizier interjected. "Surely you do not mean for your holy self to wield this power."

"But I do mean it. I would never ask another to take on the burdens I can take myself."

"I must admit that is well spoken, my Sultan..." A headset buzzed while hanging on the wall. "Excuse me."

The Vizier picked the headset up. "Yes... When?... Oh, my. I will inform His Excellency." He put the headset down. "My Sultan, America has a burden for you. A rebel there has challenged you to personal combat."

The Sultan's fists crackled with power. "Oh, my. I suppose this power is for this purpose."

"So is your army, Commander of the Faithful."

"You prove my point. If I am the Commander of the Faithful, I was given this power alongside the faithful for a reason. I command that I take this fight for myself."

-sigh- "If you must, Successor of the Prophet of the Lord of the Universe. Shall I arrange transport for you?"

As the Sultan walked onto a balcony, he looked back and said, "I feel I can find my own way." Then he flew into the air!

...

To Be CONCLUDED in New Bosnia Part 8, The Land of Might and Royalty!


Author's Notes:

I suppose it's good I took some extra time to prepare this story. It's readier to conclude now.

I have one thing I might pass on, from Ordered Realities... but I'm going to save it for people who make it to the web page www.eilertech.com/stories/2011/page.php?fn=newbosnia7.txt .

(Factor) Oh, my, the Sultan's seeking power now. The Chancellor's episodic analysts tell him, it's pure sequel. That alone guarantees rebellion success for now, and probably forever. So the Super-Savior will probably escape captivity. Aw, dammit.
